Set against the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh’s world-famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has an electric atmosphere, buzzing with visitors from across the globe all there to take part in this momentous event.

The Edinburgh Tattoo, set against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, is a spine-tingling event which will include pipers, drummers, singers and dancers including the world-famous Massed Pipes and Drums. Every year the Tattoo begins with a vivid and intense display of traditional values to the stirring sounds of ‘Dumbarton’s Drums’, ‘All the Blue Bonnets are over the Border’, ‘The Garb of Old Gaul’ and of course ‘The Skye Boat Song’ and, in a moment of calm, the Tattoo closes with the haunting presence of the Lone Piper on the Castle ramparts.

Finally the skies above erupt with a jaw-dropping display of pyrotechnics – the Edinburgh Tattoo’s finale firework display.

Since it first took place in 1950 over 12 million people have travelled to Edinburgh to see the spectacular that is the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Don’t miss out on your chance to experience this truly breathtaking event


Every year the Edinburgh Military Tattoo brings together a rich variety of cultures and heritage from across the globe and showcases impressive military precision, striking music and a whole host of entertainment.

The 2015 Tattoo also included performers from all over the world including troops from the Far East,  North America and Europe as the world’s most spectacular, military, Tattoo’s show piece-event celebrates ‘East Meets West’.
