Set against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, the Tattoo will host musical talent from literally around the world, including pipers, military bands, singers and dancers who will perform the Tattoo approximately 22 times to 9,000 people at every sold out performance during the month of August. The Tattoo, which which is a 90-minute show that attracts thousands to Scotland, will then be broadcast to over 120 million people around the world by the BBC.
