Hidden Door Festival
28 March – 5 April 2014
Market Street Vaults Edinburgh

Hidden Door – a not-for-profit independent festival for Edinburgh.

A one-off opportunity to occupy the forgotten vaults of Market Street.

80 visual artists, 50 live music acts, 40 film makers, 30 poets, 30 performers, 20 animators, 9 unique parties, 2 live music vaults, 2 bars, 1 theatre, 1 cinema, 1 secret music venue, 1 site, 1 chance.

24 Rediscovered vaults on Market Street Edinburgh unlocked for 9 days only, to showcase some of Scotland’s best breakthrough talent.

9 Nights – 9 Unique parties.


The vaults, which are currently derelict, will shortly afterwards be taken over by Artisan Real Estate – the property developers behind the controversial Caltongate development project.  Hidden Door will transform them into:

Two 200 capacity live music venues with state of the art sound and light, plus a third ‘secret’ live music venue for more intimate music events.   There will be over 40 bands and musicians performing over the 9 days

A series of 18 vaults filled with immersive art installations including light-reactive robots, mazes and labyrinths, stunning video projections, as well as more conventional paintings and sculpture

A performance Theatre Space with over 40 contributors

A cinema space screening 9 nights of film and animation programmes

Two bars selling quality drinks, including some of the best of new Scottish produce, including a café space selling food and hot drinks


Hidden Door is a not-for-profit arts production company.  It was set up to provide exciting and inspiring opportunities for emerging and breakthrough talent in Scotland that would encourage a D.I.Y attitude to arts production that didn’t depend on government funding to operate.
