Now in its 22nd year, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, produced by Unique Events for the benefit of the City of Edinburgh Council, welcomes revellers from all over the world to the capital city for three days over the Hogmanay period.

The Waverley Stage at the Street Party sees a strong, all-Scottish line-up this year with a headline performance from Scotland’s festival-favourites Twin Atlantic who have just released their second album, Great Divide. They will be joined by the winners of this year’s Mercury Prize, Edinburgh’s own alternative hip hop group Young Fathers and Indie Rock band The Twilight Sad, who have also just released their new album to critical acclaim.

Audiences at the Scottish Stage will enjoy performances from Scotland’s chanteuse extraordinaire singer-songwriter Eddi Reader with special guests the internationally touring, Radio 2 Folk Award nominated Breabach and the Scottish piping phenomenon Ross Ainslie & Jarlath Henderson. At the ever-popular Keilidh Stage revellers will be birling through the bells to The Smashers (featuring members of Rura), Hugh MacDiarmid’s Haircut and The Jimi Shandrix Experience.

Joining headliner Lily Allen on the Concert in the Gardens stage will be special guests, 5 x Brit nominated, Grammy award winning dance/R&B superstars Soul II Soul, who celebrate 25 years of chart topping success this year, and to get the party started internationally acclaimed Björn Again the Australian ABBA show.

With five live stages and countdown fireworks at 9pm, 10pm and 11pm, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay once again offers an exhilarating and eclectic mix of live entertainment which will climax with the singing of the world’s largest Auld Lang Syne and the spectacular Midnight Fireworks from the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle.
