More than thirty performers from across the world have been lined up for this year’s Edinburgh International Magic Festival.

The festival, which was launched today, will feature mindreading, cabaret, comedy and magicians from as far afield as Australia, New Zealand and Ukraine.

Artistic director Kevin McMahon said: “Magic demonstrates, in a creative manner, that the human soul has within it the capability to rise above the forces of nature and flourish.

“It is the artistic example that any impossible challenge can be overcome.”

The festival, which runs from 29th June to 6th July, will include a opening night gala at Edinburgh’s Lyceum Theatre.
