How to read The List

Some time back in the spring ~ one of those wet weekends when the

only thing to see was a Gary Numan

tribute band or a Pokemon movie the editor came up with a ludicrous scheme for us to cover every show in every festival in Edinburgh in August. Naturally. we humoured

him. But it turns out he was serious.

And none of our protestations fingers worn to the bone. no sleep for a fortnight. loss of friends and relatives seemed to register.

80 here it is. yOLir regular guide to

what‘s on. plus the biggest. boldest.

most comprehensive independent guide to the Edinburgh Festivals in this Or any other universe now and forever more.

Here's what to do if you‘re in Edinburgh:

Step One Find a bench. sit and breathe deeply. Open your eyes. Step Two Identify your three magazines: this regular edition of The List (1 ). the Festival supplement (21 and the Festival Listings supplementl3).
