This year's ticket sales are over 5% up on last year. It felt like it on the streets. As this post indicates, I suggested the city needs to move up a gear in providing space for street performers as the crowds grow.
Here are some of the details (with last year's figures in brackets):
- Tickets sold - 1,955,913 +5%
- Performances - 40,254 (34,265)
- Shows - 2,453 (2,098)
- Venues - 259 (265)
- Performers - 2,453
- Fringe High Street acts - 662
