Early tickets are now on sale to the world’s largest arts event, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The festival runs from August 2 through 26 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Fringe began in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival and now dwarfs that festival in size. Nearly 2 million tickets are sold each year for more than 40,000 performances in 250 venues representing just about every type of entertainment there is. Many of the most popular shows sell out so the early ticket option is the best way to ensure you have seats to sell out shows.

Last year’s top shows included, Songs of Lear, The I Hate Children Children’s Show, and Translunar Paradise. The I Hate Children Children’s Show was the first children’s show to make the festival’s top rated list having garnered more five star reviews than any children’s show in the festival’s history and selling out daily.

This year’s festival offers a promising lineup with some of the best shows from 2012 returning. Best shows including The I Hate Children Children’s Show and the Edinburgh Tattoo have already announced their 2013 ticket sales along with Daniel Sloss, The Boy with Tape on his Face, and Pete Firman.

Among the most promising shows this year is a favorite magic show. Devil in the Deck stars Paul Nathan (HBO, MTV, Star Trek Voyager) as Jack Swindle, a con man cursed by a bad tarot reading. Jack takes the audience on a journey around the world as he falls in love, cheats at cards, and searches for a cure to the gypsy curse. The show mixes magic, theater, and multi-media and live music to create a show that is truly unique. Duncan Wilson, a native of Edinburgh and a long time fan of the festival claims "Devil in the deck is the best magic show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe."

Whatever you enjoy you are certain to find it at the Fringe. With more than 1300 performances each day by more than 20,000 performers from 60, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe promises everything from comedy, to circus, music, and theater.
