The 2014 Festival runs August 22 – 24 and as it says on their website, it’s three days of family fun with some of the most talented freaks, geeks, artists and musicians around.

Comments: When you get enough performers assembled at a festival all trying to work in a contained area where shows are almost on top of each other, it can become a bit of a contest as to who is going to be able to hold their crowd. This is the story of Charlie Caper’s first visit to Edinburgh and his Jedi-like mastery of his crowd and the pitch dynamics.

And thanks again to The Lawrence Buskers Festival for sponsoring this episode!
