Over the years, it has evolved into a global phenomenon, attracting performers and spectators from around the world.

 

The event takes place annually at the iconic Edinburgh Castle, perched on Castle Rock, providing a breathtaking backdrop to military bands, drill teams, and artistic performances. Spectators can expect to witness a fusion of traditional Scottish music, dance, and international military pageantry, all set against the historic and majestic setting of Edinburgh Castle.

 

The atmosphere is nothing short of electrifying as the sound of bagpipes resonates through the air and military formations move in perfect unison. As one of the longest-running and most popular military tattoos globally, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo welcomes around 220,000 spectators each year.
