EDINBURGH FESTIVAL, 2015: FERGUS LINEHAN. Philip Fisher interviews the International Festival’s new director about running the Festival, his highly successful first programme and the underlying principles that he hopes to follow. Recorded at the Hub, 18-08-2015. www.eif.co.uk

“There’s a normal rhythm to festivals which is that they start and they ebb and flow, this one generally just flows. I realise I have to watch this and take notes. There are many things I’m realising just through sitting through this festival that had never really occurred to me before. Most pointedly… there’s that enormous second wave of people who arrive here and don’t know what they’re going to go to.”
