Over 1,000 performers from America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom will appear at this year's 59th Edinburgh Tattoo (1-23 August).
Opening the 2008 proceedings is a specially-commissioned fanfare composed by Royal Marine Major Mick Dowrick - entitled Op Corporate - which will be performed at the start of each show during this summer's 25-performance run.
They comprise the Pipes & Drums of 1st Royal Tank Regiment, 1st Battalion Scots Guards, The Royal Scots Borderers, 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, The Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles, representatives of Scotland's Universities' Officers' Training Corps, and Queen Victoria School, Dunblane. Razzmatazz will be provided in the form of one of the most televised university marching bands in the United States, the 100-strong Golden Eagles Marching Band from South East Missouri, with a fusion of music, marching and percussion. The Tattoo's own Highland Spring Dance troupe will join forces with 50 dancers from Canada in a dance piece that tells the story of Scottish migration to Canada.
In another segment in the 90-minute production, the all-girl Lochiel Champion Marching Drill Team from Wellington in New Zealand will perform an intricate display of complex precision drill. This will be followed by the first Indian military band to perform at the Edinburgh Tattoo for 46-years.
The Guard of His Majesty The King of Norway, whose bayonet tipped rifle routines have mesmerised spectators on seven previous occasions, return again this year, along with the marching Band of His Majesty The King of Norway.


Pupils from the Queen Victoria School in Dunblane will then perform a set of piping, drumming and highland dancing. Following on are the Massed Military Bands featuring the combined Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines, who take centre stage with a packed musical programme.
The Bands of The Royal Regiment of Scotland, His Majesty The King of Norway, and the Indian Army Chief, along with the Singapore Police Force, will then join them with songs through the ages. Bringing the show to a poignant close will be the traditional haunting notes of the Lone Piper playing a piece of music named ‘The Centenary Toast', written by Captain Steven Small, Director of Army Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming, to celebrate 100 years of the Territorial Army and also that of Queen Victoria School. Also, from August 11-14, members of the Territorial Army will parade to mark TA 100, this year's centenary of the Territorial Army. Tickets for the Tattoo sold out early as in previous years, but there are often resale tickets available from the Tattoo Ticket Sales Office.
It is a dream come true to be supplying this contract to Edinburgh Castle.  After having provided services to numerous corporate and wedding events at the castle, we are proud to become part of the whole visitor experience of Scotland?s most famous visitor attraction. It was the military tattoo at Edinburgh castle that first inspired me to play the bagpipes, so this is indeed an honour.


The programme announced yesterday includes all the traditional ingredients of massed pipes & drums, massed bands, overseas contingents, and the Lone Piper on the floodlit Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle at the end.
While from overseas, making their sixth appearance at the Tattoo, is Melbourne's Rats of Tobruk from Australia, who will be there with the Singapore Police Gurkha Pipes & Drums returning to Edinburgh after a 17-year absence. For the first time the Norwegian contingent will provide the Castle Drawbridge sentries, while performing the prestigious Guard of Honour duty during the finale sequence.
Together with their renowned precision drummers, the Bands' embrace some 150 musicians from HM Royal Marines Plymouth, Portsmouth and Scotland, and are under the direction of their Commandant and Principal Director of Music and the 2008 Tattoo Director of Music, Lieutenant Colonel C J Davis.
