About Hidden Door Festival
We open up forgotten urban spaces for the public to explore and discover incredible music, art, theatre, dance, spoken word and more.
This summer, we're bringing the old Royal High School on Calton Hill to life for a ten day festival. The property, empty since the 1960s, will be used to celebrate Scotland’s exciting new and emerging creative talent, before work begins to transform it into Scotland’s new National Centre for Music.
Your ticket gets you access to everything on offer each night – be sure to explore every corridor and corner of the huge old Royal High to discover everything we’ve gathered for you.
