By | Published on Wednesday 24 August 2011


The Festival Media Network, a collective of independent media which cover the Edinburgh Festival, will stage their annual Media At The Fringe Debate at 11am on Thursday, 25 Aug, at the SpaceCabaret on North Bridge.

FMN was launched in 2010, bringing together different independent media for the first time to encourage the sharing of knowledge and to promote journalistic and editorial best practice in covering arts festivals. All Fringe promoters, performers and publicists are invited to attend the debate, where there will be an update on FMN’s activities in the last twelve months, and the opportunity to discuss the role of review media at the Fringe, and the ways in which performers, publicists and the press can better work together.

Current FMN members are Broadway Baby, Festival Previews, FringeGuru, FringeReview, Hairline, ThreeWeeks and Whatsonstage.com.
