Edinburgh Festival 2010


Recommended Posts


Thank you for making a thread on this subject, otherwise I wouldn't have found out.

When is Edinburgh Festival? Because I'm going to London, so I might even be able to come.

Scott's flatmate is appearing at the Fringe again this year, although the program says it starts at 00.20 for an hour.....

Edit: OMG.... that sounds totally AMEZZIN' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The TOTDS will probably just stand on stage for 30 minutes and not say anything...........

Can't wait shall be trying to get tickets again!

The same here!

I heard Scott say that they are going to be doing the radio show at the festival from 16 August for a week. I hope they'll be in the same place as last year (The Cellar @ the Pleasance).

August 16th (madonna's birthday)

Well, there's the answer of what Scott can do at the fest... 30 minutes of answering questions about his life/career/whatever, and requests to perform Madonna songs!!

Sorted.

this is what @ThePleasance have tweeted today: "Our favourite DJ Scott Mills is in now filming for his challenge at the Festival this year. We are looking forward to having him back in Aug". www.twitter.com/ThePleasance

I was out all day yesterday so didn't hear any of this, what exactly is Scott and the rest of the team doing this year? If its a show I'm very much up for going or is it an OB with guests and features from people appearing in Edinburgh this year?

I actually can't wait for the festival, thank god I work in the mornings :D

BBC Radio 1 is returning to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe next month, with DJ Scott Mills facing his toughest challenge yet in front of an entertainment-hungry audience.

Following the huge success of last year's Scott Mills The Musical, which played to a full house over three nights and received rave reviews, this time Scott and his team, Beccy and "The One That Doesn't Speak", must write and perform their own one-man show.

One person, one performance. What they do will be up to them – music, comedy, dance, physical theatre, opera – but can any of them create a five-star success? Or will they be heckled from the stage?

Scott Mills said: "We had a great time broadcasting from Edinburgh last year so it's brilliant to have the chance to spend the week in Scotland and get involved with the Fringe again.

"After the musical I thought I'd never be as terrified again – but l am! What shall I do in my one-man show? What would you do? I have no idea!"

From 16-20 August, Scott's Radio 1 show (4-7pm) will be live from Edinburgh as the team each take it in turns to perform their one-man shows in the evenings.

Over the next few weeks, Scott and the team will be asking listeners for ideas and inspiration on how to entertain an audience on their own.

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, Radio 1, said: "Radio 1's presence at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010 promises to be yet another ambitious creative project for the station, where Scott will entertain his audience on the radio, visually online and through the events at the Fringe."

This year, Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw will also be live from the Edinburgh Fringe and each night, when Scott and the team come off stage, they will go straight onto Nick's show (10pm-12midnight) to tell him how they got on.

Scott Mills The Musical was the surprise hit of last summer's festival, but can the team do it again – on their own?

You have to be kidding me.

I dont want to seem mean, but serious? Last year the musical was great and it had the novelty factor, but I'm not digging whatever this is meant to be this year.

But you don't seem to know what it is? :P

I definitely don't like the dates. It's in august, that's okay, but I'm flying home on 21 august, so can't travel to Edinburgh the day before => have to ask the language school for a day off during the week. They probably won't allow it :(

These are the worst dates for me, I'm off all summer but go back to work on the 12th August. Boo hoo! :cry:
