It begun in 1947, when unofficial theatre groups gathered and performed on the fringes of the official festival. It has come a long way; it broke all records and became the largest arts festival in the world. Every year it brings thousands of performances to nearly 300 venues throughout the city. It still, however, retains the original principle of open access for all performers- there is no selection process. As a result the festival features a stunning diversity of performances. The festival is hugely popular and massively visited.
