Danny MacAskill will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of his breakthrough video today (Friday 19 April.)

The Skye sensation's video, launched in 2009, was viewed by thousands overnight and skyrocketed Danny's cycling career.   

To celebrate, Danny and his street trials stunt display team, Drop and Roll Tour,, head to the capital for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019, with a brand new supercharged live indoor show, featuring jaw-dropping stunts and gravity-defying tricks. 

Danny MacAskill's Drop and Roll Live, with an exceptionally talented team of riders including Drop and Roll's co-founder and fellow Scot, Duncan Shaw, will be performed at The Lafayette at Underbelly's Circus Hub on The Meadows, Edinburgh, every day from 3 to 24 August 2019; with two shows a day on 7, 12 and 19 August.

Danny MacAskill said: "After living on the Isle of Skye for my entire childhood, Edinburgh was the first city I ever lived in. Since arriving in the capital in 2006 the city has always been a home from home. It really opened up a whole new world in terms of riding and made me the rider I am today.

"I will always be grateful for the stunning back drop Edinburgh provided for the April 2009 video that launched my career. 10 years on it seems a fitting time to return to Edinburgh with the Drop and Roll Tour display team for a run of shows with Underbelly at such an Iconic festival. Our new show for the Fringe is going to be something very special!"

The team are working on an ambitious, adrenaline fuelled and action-packed debut Edinburgh Fringe show. Hosted by extreme sports commentator Henry Jackson, the hour-long show will be filled with super skilled tricks and audacious stunts, many replicated from the team's videos, including the Spikey Fence Rail Ride and Tree Flair (Backflip 180) performed on the Meadows for April 2009. There will be plenty of crowd participation, prizes, post show poster signings and exclusive Drop and Roll at the Edinburgh Fringe merchandise.
