Tell us about your best August festival memory in Edinburgh

Sorry, this competition has closed.


After a blank August in 2020, we're getting increasingly excited about the prospect of a busy Edinburgh for a month of Festival action this year, both online and in-person. And we want you to be involved.

We've teamed up with the Edinburgh International Festival for a series of digital articles, one of which will feature a reader who has festival memories to share.

To have a chance of being the star of that article, tell us in 50ish words your most cherished memory from an event, show, exhibition or gig that happened in Edinburgh during a previous August. It could even be from an encounter you may have had with a performer, actor, author, artist or celebrity in a bar or on the street.

John Lewis is here to help you relive your favourite music moments too. As well as featuring in the online article, the lucky winner will also receive a UE Megaboom 3 Bluetooth Waterproof Portable Speaker worth £149.99, as featured in John Lewis Edinburgh's current adverts. The newly refurbished John Lewis is now open.

So get writing and tell us about your best festival memory of Edinburgh in Augusts past...
