Preview | Linkylea in the City | Edinburgh Stramash

Linkylea will descend on the capital for a weekend of music at Edinburgh’s Stramash.

The charity-driven music festival, which has been hidden away in the countryside in East Lothian for the past ten years, will make its Edinburgh debut from October 21st to October 22nd in the Cowgate.

Relocating to Edinburgh while on the hunt for a new field, the festival raises money for The Linkylea Trust which focuses on the care, education and mental and physical well-being of vulnerable children and young adults in Gwalior (India), working particularly with those with disabilities and learning difficulties.

This year’s festival will be split over three sessions with a Friday night, Saturday day and Saturday evening gig.
