Go Higher: Scotland and Northern Ireland - The main attraction Events Diary 1999-2000
Tuesday 10 August 1999
A year-long series of events across the city with many major building works, community projects and exhibitions on show.
Edinburgh International Festival
Two weeks in August featuring the cream of the world's drama, ballet and opera.
Edinburgh International Fringe Festival
The same two weeks in August, but with thousands of plays, comedians, street performers and every other type of entertainment imaginable. It's impossible to see it all, but it'll be a lot of fun trying.
Belfast International Festival
The largest cultural festival in Europe outside of Edinburgh, the Belfast International Festival in October 1999 offers a similar diet of weird and wonderful events.
T in The Park, Glasgow
The second weekend in July sees Scotland's largest music festival, with at least six stages and hundreds of performers. Only the weather (and rarely even that) can dampen this live music extravaganza.
T by The River, Belfast
Second weekend in July. Belfast's answer to The Park. Moved from the Botanical Gardens due to unprecedented demand, expect this yearly event to grow and grow.
Jazz 2000, Scotland
A year-long promotion of jazz music and culture throughout Scotland. Many events, workshops and concerts are planned with special events coinciding with Glasgow's JazzFest in July and Edinburgh's in August.
Tramway re-opening, Glasgow
Provisionally pencilled in for March 2000, this huge arts and performance space is due to have building work completed for a new season of multi- media performances and exhibitions.
Dundee gets in on the contemporary arts scene, with a long overdue centre dedicated to performance and exhibitions of all kinds. Due to open before Christmas.
