About Us

Backstage On The Fringe launched in August 2016 and produced 13 episodes, followed by 15 in 2017.  The aim of the podcast is to highlight new work and hidden gems on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and to provide an insight into the challenges and benefits of bringing a show to Edinburgh.

The podcast is produced and presented by Gary Daniell, a Fringe Fan with over 25 years experience of seeking out the very best lesser known shows.

We provide a platform for Fringe participants to talk about the story behind their show and give the audience a greater insight into the work.
