Scotland's capital has been transformed into a giant interactive backdrop – casting visitors in the centre of an audiovisual art installation.

This year more than 3,000 acts are performing in 300 venues across the city.

Music and performance arts are taking centre stage in Scotland's capital. The Edinburgh Festival is back for the 70th year.

The festival is a salute to the performance arts born out of the destruction of World War II, and it has stayed true to this legacy every summer since 1947.

"It's just an amazing spectacle. Everything has come together, and it's beautiful," says one visitor.
