Introducing... 

Edinburgh International Magazine Festival
September 16-22 


PPA Scotland has a game-changing idea in 2019. This September, PPA Scotland will bring an exciting new festival to Edinburgh’s vibrant cultural calendar. The inaugural Edinburgh International Magazine Festival will run for a week from September 16-22, and will feature speakers and events from some of the world’s best-loved magazine media brands.

The Edinburgh International Magazine Festival will be the first event of its kind – and a unique opportunity to celebrate the place of magazines in our culture, as well as meet the people behind your favourite titles. Taking place in various venues across the city of Edinburgh, the festival will feature a variety of events for a wide range of audiences – from families to magazine professionals, and those with an academic interest in magazines to culture vultures.

At the heart of the festival will be PPA Scotland’s top industry-focussed event, the much-loved Magfest (September 20, Central Hall, Edinburgh). 

For the Edinburgh International Magazine Festival, Magfest will be joined by a mixture of free and paid-for events with a strong focus on engaging with a wide range of magazine communities. These will include talks and interviews; workshops and hands-on experiences; tours; kids’ events; and more. Individual events will be announced in the coming weeks.
