Jean We’re On The Fringe, And We’re Loving It

Greetings from Edinburgh, Scotland, where we’ve been camped out for three days in the SoundCloud Shack. It’s a little old place that we’ve set up to connect with all the audio & music creators and lovers who have come to Edinburgh to enjoy the Festival Fringe.

The SoundCloud Shack makes its global debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Right in the heart of the Fringe on the Royal Mile, we’re welcoming everyone to come to the Shack to check out product demos, enjoy some free cotton candy (orange, of course) and recharge their phones. We’ve got ponchos and umbrellas when the weather goes cloudy. And we’re here to chat all about audio on SoundCloud.

The Shack’s also a performance space: we’re inviting audio creators who are here at the Festival to do pop-up sets and record podcasts.

David Deery spoke to Gemma Whelan — she’s in two shows at Fringe, and you also might recognize her from her starring role as Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones.

Bryony Hawkins and her guests provided a bit of darker humor with a live recording of Standup Tragedy.
