The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018

The Greatest Show on earth commences 3rd August to 25th August and takes place against the breathtaking backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, showcasing music, dance and display from around the world.

The theme for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018 is The Sky's the Limit in 2018

The military extravaganza will return for 24 performances during August with a 100-minute showcase of music, dance and technical wizardry, including some of the world's finest military bands and performers.

"Scotland's Year of Young People offers a fabulous opportunity to help inspire the up-and-coming generations to reach for the sky. This year too, we are delighted to support The Royal Air Force in celebrating their 100th anniversary and they will be the lead Service at the Tattoo. With these two ingredients, under our own theme of The Sky’s The Limit, we can explore gravity, the history of manned flight - even into space - and explore the power of human potential in the round."
Brigadier David Allfrey, Chief Executive and Producer of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

As part of this significant programme of events 14-18 NOW have co-commissioned, with An Lanntair Arts Centre, Duncan Chisholm and Julie Fowlis to deliver a production marking the centenary of the sinking of HMY Iolaire.

For over four decades Runrig have uniquely combined their Gaelic roots with a mainstream rock sensibility that has won them countless fans across the globe.

The band was founded on the Isle of Skye in 1973 and enjoyed UK chart success with Gaelic songs in the 1990s.

The band released their 14th and final studio album, The Story, last year.

Next year will draw down the curtain on a group that has meant so much to so many.

Their final concerts will be held in Stirling's City Park on 17th and 18th August 2018. Due to the overwhelming demand from fans an extra concert date arranged.

"Announcing The Last Dance has brought with it so many mixed emotions. We’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the response and the love from our fans. We're delighted to be able to add an additional concert and promise it will be a night to remember. It will be emotional; it will be fun; it will be entertaining; but amongst all, it will be a special evening saying farewell." Calum Macdonald.
