what's trending at edfringe 2019?

What happens when a data scientist and an arts writer have one too many late-night drinks? Fringebiscuit Trends is what — a unique data platform dedicated to bringing you high quality, easily digestible analysis of a kind seen nowhere else at the Fringe. The Trends homepage is a permanent repository for all our insights and plots, including the famous daily-updated Twitter tracker.


This is our famous #FringebiscuitTrends Twitter tracker! Updated each and every day with the freshest, juiciest Twitter data from Edfringe audiences, we’re calculating daily mentions and positivity for each and every show in the Fringe (see here for a detailed explanation of how we do this). Remember, the wider the ribbon, the more positive vibes that show is generating amongst Fringegoers! Our plots are 100% interactive, so you can hover, zoom, track and select the shows you’re interested in.


This is our archived #FringebiscuitTrends tracker from which we used to track the excitement in the run-up to Edfringe 2019. Though our live tracker above has taken over the job of tracking the daily Twitter buzz, we’ll link back to this data to see how our early birds are doing now the Fringe is underway!
