Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2025

Witness Edinburgh’s spectacular showcase of military precision, music, and entertainment. Originating in 1950, the Tattoo was conceived as a means to boost post-World War II morale and showcase the military traditions of Scotland. Over the years, it has evolved into a global phenomenon, attracting performers and spectators from around the world.

 

The event takes place annually at the iconic Edinburgh Castle, perched on Castle Rock, providing a breathtaking backdrop to military bands, drill teams, and artistic performances. Spectators can expect to witness a fusion of traditional Scottish music, dance, and international military pageantry, all set against the historic and majestic setting of Edinburgh Castle.

The atmosphere is nothing short of electrifying as the sound of bagpipes resonates through the air and military formations move in perfect unison. As one of the longest-running and most popular military tattoos globally, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo welcomes around 220,000 spectators each year.

One of the most iconic and anticipated elements of the Tattoo is the Massed Pipes and Drums. Hundreds of pipers and drummers perform in unison, creating a powerful and memorable experience for the audience.
