The Scottish Chamber Orchestra performed live in Princes Street Gardens before a flurry of colourful pyrotechnics filled the sky over Edinburgh Castle, ending one of the most successful festivals in years.
More than 2200 artists from 36 nations have filled Edinburgh's stages over the last 24 days in 220 performances and events.
The festival sold over 80% of seats, with nearly half the shows sold out.
Festival Director Jonathan Mills said: "Edinburgh International Festival 2013 has been enjoyable, exciting and thought-provoking. Artists have joined us from around the world, bringing fresh perspectives on ideas and technologies."
Around 158,500 tickets have been issued and the total box office income reached over £2.43 million.
Virgin Money - sponsor of the concert and fireworks display - announced yesterday that it would be extending its sponsorship of Edinburgh's Fringe on the High Street for a further three years.
Paul Lloyd, Marketing Director at Virgin Money, said: "We pride ourselves on being an innovative new bank and the Fringe is the perfect fit for us."
