Be dazzled by the breathtaking pyrotechnics. Be transported by the joyful music. All against the backdrop of one of the world’s most iconic landmarks.

The spectacular Virgin Money Fireworks Concert brings together unforgettable orchestral classics from Edinburgh’s own Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and awe-inspiring fireworks, specially choreographed by international fireworks artists Pyrovision to enhance your musical experience – all set against the magnificent, historic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

Join the city of Edinburgh for this joyous celebration of summer festivals, inspirational music and breathtaking fireworks – marking the resplendent conclusion to the 2018 Edinburgh International Festival. Conducted by Clark Rundell, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra celebrates the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein with a specially chosen selection of his foot-tapping, flamboyant music – with very special guest artists.

After the interval, join the Orchestra for a mind-expanding journey into deepest space, with music from Gustav Holst’s visionary The Planets – from the overwhelming power of ‘Mars’ to the eerie beauty of ‘Venus’; from the seething energy of ‘Saturn’ to the majestic grandeur of ‘Jupiter’. All accompanied by a jaw-dropping display of fireworks from the Edinburgh Castle ramparts.

Over 100,000 fireworks launched from Edinburgh’s imposing Castle make this one of the biggest fireworks concerts in the world. Around a quarter of a million people gather across the city and beyond to share in this annual grand International Festival finale.
