1ST & 2ND September 2018
Join us for the 2018
Edinburgh Mela.
The Edinburgh Mela celebrates Scotland's diverse culture.  We deliver a high-quality festival of music, dance and the wider arts from around the world all with the express purpose of promoting community cohesion and mutual understanding between our changing and diverse communities.
Many communities come together.
Enjoy a diverse programme of music and dance which incorporated local and international acts, representing a wealth of countries and continents, from India, Africa, China, and the Arab nations.  The Edinburgh Mela is back and here to stay, with wonderful plans for 2018!

Edinburgh Mela is a unique community event where people are
different but the same. It is a place where Equality, Diversity and
Inclusion are celebrated through culture and the arts. This year
Edinburgh Mela will extend to three days. The Board of Edinburgh
Mela has worked tirelessly together to produce a programme which will meet the cultural and artistic needs of all those who attend this special Edinburgh event.

There will be a unique mix of music, songs, shows, exciting foods and drinks. On behalf of the Mela Board I would like to thank the City of Edinburgh Council, Creative Scotland and the Big Lottery for significant funding. Thanks also goes to the staff, volunteers, the general public and staff members of Edinburgh Council who have been very helpful.

As in the past, thousands of people will attend Edinburgh Mela 2018.

Please support us with your presence.
