The Insider’s Guide To Edinburgh Fringe (Infographic)

Posted on May 20 2014 - 9:51am by Alexandra Ashton

Without the arts, the images we see around us would morph moment per moment into something dull and unexciting. Every minute and every movement we experience is always made better by the arts. To ignore the power of music, dance and theatre would be like blurring out what we’re seeing and live a dull unexciting life that may not be worth living. In fact, no less than Jason Fischer himself, a postdocotoral fellow who co-authored a study about changing perception, has even implied that our brain prefers to percieve images that make the body feel stable and pleasant. And it is probably in this idea that we now annually celebrate the Edinburgh Fringe Festival of the Arts.

Many ideas as to why Edinburgh is still here are debated upon by people, but one thing is certain: to survive the event, you have to be prepared. Learn the tricks to surviving the event and still enjoy the music of Haim and The Walkmen in this infographic. With the creative experiment the authors or creators of Edinburgh Festival did with the first  participants of the festival, it was perceived that those who were gauged on whether they’re happy or not about having the annual Edinburgh Festival would always test positive on The Happiness Test because otherwise, there would be no repeat of the festival. And that is probably the start of the fantastic Edinburgh Feast.

In the course of the many series of festivals, it was also found out that a person’s love for the feast is not biased on their taste for the most recently popularized songs but  is often also rooted to old-school resources of music and other arts. Blinded by the bad images that come from joining crowded festivals where stampedes may occur, it was easy to say that the results of the celebration were confirmed to be not only successful, but also fantastic enough to warrant a repeat.
