Registration for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024 is now open, but as the Fringe Society points out, it stays open throughout August, so there is no immediate rush.
There are advantages, however, to making an early commitment, as long as you are sure you can go through with it. That includes certainty about the necessary financial backing and having accommodation, which this year might be more difficult than ever as the new letting regulations come into force.
The following dates and deadlines might prove useful.
The first batch of shows for Fringe 2024 will be released for sale from Thursday 22 February. If you want be in this initial tranche, your listing needs to be signed off by Monday 05 February.
The early-bird discount deadline for registration is 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 06 March.
The final deadline for inclusion in the print programme is 17:00 BST on Wednesday 10 April.
