Batala Mundo at Edinburgh Fringe

First visit to Edinburgh Fringe Festival for Batala Mundo

On Saturday 11 August 2018 we made our first appearance at the world’s biggest festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

A core of 16 Lancaster players alongside members of sister bands from Mersey, Bermo, Bangor, London, Bristol, Barcelona, Austria, and Portsmouth played at the city’s Mound Circle.

This highly sought after gig followed a summer including gigs ranging from local events such as Halton Millfest and Lancaster St George’s Day Parade, to huge events such as Manchester Day Parade and Kendal Calling festival.

Batala Lancaster Gigs Coordinator John Hammill, who made the booking, said before the gig: “This is one of the biggest gigs that we have landed to date and everyone is really excited to be playing at this amazing event.”
