This year’s festival also has an international flavour, with acts from around the world visiting Stirling. Performers from South Africa (Simply Soweto Encha), Sweden (Lyy) and Canada (Wes Zaharuk) will join talent from across the UK in this year’s programme. Not forgetting, of course, a raft of talent from Stirling. And where else in Scotland will you be able to make art from nettles, eat exotic street food, watch a historical re-enactment and dance along to a Swedish folk group - all on the same day!
Music lovers are in for a special treat this year as two of Scotland’s cutting edge record labels, Lost Map and Chemikal Underground, bring exclusive showcase events to the festival, featuring some of the most exciting new musical talent in the country.
The 20 venues for the Festival are all located in and around Stirling city centre and the University campus.
In only it’s second year, the Stirling Fringe offers an ambitious programme of music, comedy, theatre, spoken word, art, children's events, poetry and a family-friendly Fringe Sunday.
The varied programme is also more than double the length of the inaugural event in 2013. The scope of the Fringe has also widened, with homegrown talent and performers from across the globe to do exactly what the Stirling Fringe promises - to Innovate Collaborate Celebrate.

Stirling is only a short 40 minute drive from any of Cooper Cottages self-catering holiday cottages so if you are planning a Scottish holiday during the 10 days of the Stirling Fringe Festival why not attend one (or more) of the events being staged here in central Scotland in what promises to be a great family event.
