Welcome to the Edinburgh Mela 

Scotland’s biggest and best celebration of world music and dance

Welcome to the Edinburgh Mela! For over twenty years we’ve been bringing outstanding world music and gorgeous international dance to Scotland’s capital city, in a joyous carnival of colour, rhythm, community celebration…and delicious food.

In 2015, the Mela will run from Saturday 29 – Sunday 30 August. Planning for it is already underway- keep up to date with us on social media, below, for all the latest info!
