The Edinburgh Festival and Fringe program are out now. Coinciding with this, I had an interview with Three Weeks to do some reviews for them in August, and with the Big Issue Scotland to get a crew together to cover the Amnesty International Human Rights Festival. It’s all volunteering though. Which I don’t mind but for the lack of money. But at least the power balance of worker and boss is nicely egalitarian.
I particularly like the more non-commercial festivals, like described in previous year’s blog entry: “Edinburgh Festival for free”.
Word Power, the best bookshop in Edinburgh/Scotland/Britain, is launching this year its own little festival contribution. However, most of the small festivals are usually all run by volunteers and therefore they might not yet have their programmes together though.
