The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is, for the first time, to have an official, Creative Scotland-funded, music thread.

Made in Scotland – a curated showcase of dance and theatre productions from Scotland – is to diversify into music, with the all-genre programme being promoted during a five day focus from 14-18 August 2013.

The mini-festival should fill the void left since T on the Fringe / The Edge, and previously, Tigerfest and Planet Pop, ceased to programme music during the August arts extravaganza.

Interested artists, and promoters,are being invited to perform at Made in Scotland 2013 – follow the link, or see the Facebook group for more details.
