The Mardi Gras brings the Festival to the heart of Edinburgh’s old town, which becomes a mini New Orleans for the afternoon. A host of bands, stages, brollie dollies and a mix of visiting and local musicians create the party atmosphere. The Stooges from New Orleans launch the afternoon, joined by Savannah Jazz Band, Al's Dixie Palz, singers Iain Hunter and Freddie King, blues Harmonica wizard and vocalist Dana Dixon with her band, lazy acoustic blues – and new to the festival – from Sleepy Eyes Nelson and, of course, Mardi Gras stalwarts The Criterion Parade Band. (Please note there is no parade this year).
