Over the Bridge has been developed by Stockbridge residents Edward Wilson and Preston Mommsen.

The duo previously brought a food and drinks market, the Neighbourgood Market, to the area, which showcased some of Scotland’s best food and drink offerings. Visitors to the market were able to enjoy live music from local artists.

今年, we wanted to bring live entertainment back to the city

Mr Wilson and Mr Mommsen recognised the potential impact that a music festival could have on the residents of Stockbridge, just north of Edinburgh’s city centre. They went through a public consultation process with locals and the wider community to ensure a positive outcome on behalf of Over the Bridge.

Mr Wilson said: “We’re extremely proud to be Edinburgh locals, and two years ago we wanted to bring something special to the city, which is when the Neighbourgood Market was born.

“After two tough years for Edinburgh, including a scaled-back version of Fringe Festival, live music and arts have been on hold.

"この年, we wanted to bring live entertainment back to the city, so we are excited to announce the launch of the three-day music event, Over the Bridge.

“With a line-up of amazing local and national acts, and with day and weekend tickets available, we hope it will be one of the highlights of this summer in Edinburgh.”

Tickets for the event will go on sale online via Ticketmaster on Friday.
