The Edinburgh Mela – 2016

Due to funding issues beyond our control the Edinburgh Mela Festival will not take place in August 2016 as planned.

The Mela Board although very disappointed to have to take this decision wish to confirm that work is already underway to produce a vibrant, more community connected Mela Festival in 2017.

We are working on plans to build an even more diverse festival that will celebrate key international anniversaries in 2017. We will be working in partnership and co- commissioning with other UK Mela festivals.

We look forward to celebrating the Mela with all our partners and stakeholders. We are always looking for partners to make the Mela Festival more successful and over the next year we hope to extend our programme within the community on a year round basis.

We will be developing our plans in the next few months and will hold a smaller event in 2016 to celebrate the Mela. For more information please keep an eye on our website.
