At The Edinburgh Reporter we are always looking to use technology in innovative ways. This summer we are launching a project to use audio to bring you instant updates from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and sounds from the streets of Edinburgh during August.

We will also hold round table discussions with our own reporters to be used in longer broadcasts when we shall take the time to discuss what we have seen and what we are about to go and see whether it is comedy, music or theatre. the first of these is to be held at Hemma on Holyrood Road at 12 noon on Sunday 5 August 2012. Please come along and listen live or contribute to our reviews and previews!

We will be interviewing as many performers as we can get our hands on too. If you are bringing a show to the Fringe then do get in touch with us and we will interview you about your show. If you are running a venue at this year’s Fringe then please get in touch to help us organise interviews with acts performing there.

If you are planning to be only a member of the audience during the Festival then you can still help!

If you would like to record a review of a show on Soundcloud then you can tag it with EdinburghReporterRadio and so long as it does not contain anything defamatory, any swearing or bad language then we may use it on the website. By tagging your audio in this way we will assume that you have consented to our free use of it on The Edinburgh Reporter website. we need your help and feedback to make this project work so if you would like to be involved then please tell us now.

So use your smart phone and get the Soundcloud App to take part!

If you need tickets for the Fringe then you can buy these on your phone by downloading the Fringe App.
