The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Edinburgh is host to many exciting events throughout the year, particularly the world-famous summer festivals that hit the city annually. Part of these festivals is The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, a unique celebration of military pageantry, music and dance.

The dramatic show is certainly an experience like no other, set against the stunning backdrop of the illuminated Edinburgh Castle. Read on to discover more about this incredible event and what you can expect this year.

What’s On At The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Every year, Edinburgh Castle hosts nearly 1,000 drummers, singers, pipers and dancers as they perform some unforgettable experiences. There will be performances from the Massed Military Bands as well as Massed Pipes and Drums. Emerging from the expansive gates of Edinburgh Castle, the bands play inspirational battle tunes from the famed regiments of Scotland.

In addition to these local-loved musicians, international performers will also take to the stage. Every year The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo brings something fresh, unique and unforgettable, with many faithful fans continuing to attend every year. At the end of the evenings, a lone piper will bring a haunting and poignant close to the show with a solo performance from the castle ramparts. This is followed by a beautiful firework display and crowds singing Auld Lang Syne as military jets close the show with a flypast.
