Sponsor Us

Want to be part of the Scotland’s biggest festival of world music, dance, fashion and food?

We’re inviting companies and brands to get involved as sponsors of the 2017 Edinburgh Mela.

The Mela is one of Edinburgh’s major summer festivals and we benefit from being part of the Festivals Edinburgh family and the exposure that brings. In 2015 we had an audience of nearly 30,000 people. 

Our audiences are some of the most diverse of any festival in Scotland, with a huge range of cultures and communities represented.

Sponsoring the Edinburgh Mela gives your company the opportunity to:

– Associate your brand with the colour and vibrancy of one of Scotland's top Festivals. Edinburgh Mela's unique mix of world-class production values and grassroots appeal means it offers something for a diverse audience of all ages.

– Target audiences who enjoy world culture, food and travel.

– Enhance your CSR programme by supporting a much-loved event that inspires children and families alike.

– Build your brand's presence not just with the Mela's unique audience but with the wider Edinburgh Festivals audience. Some 3.7 million people engage with Edinburgh's summer festivals alone, widely acknowledged as the biggest cultural event in the world. 



We have a range of sponsorship packages available.  You can sponsor one of our Mela performances on the main stage, our hugely popular Global Food Village, or maybe our kids zone which welcomes nearly 6,000 children with their families over the weekend!

We are creative and we're open to ideas, so we can also develop a tailored sponsorship package that suits you and your business objectives.

For full details of available sponsorship packages, or to discuss options for a customised package, please contact us on info@edinburgh-mela.co.uk or calling the Mela office on 0131 661 7100.
