So, it’s time to plan your New Year’s Eve in Edinburgh. This year, Franz Ferdinand will be headlining the Concert in the Gardens. There will be plenty of festive entertainment, parties and performances for all ages. So, book your Hogmanay tickets and get ready for a long night of celebrations.
Street Party into the Wee Small Hours
See in the New Year at the world’s most spectacular Street Party. There are outdoor bars and street food to pick up a hot snack or glass of fizz with friends. While listening to live music, you can soak up the pre-countdown party atmosphere.
Scottish indie-rock band Franz Ferdinand will be taking to the stage at the Concert in the Gardens. Mercury Music prize nominees Metronomy and the Glasgow-based duo Free Love will be supporting them. Concert tickets also include access to the Street Party.
Then at midnight, as the bells chime, you’ll have great views of the spectacular firework display over Edinburgh Castle. As the bells ring in 2018, soak up the vibrant atmosphere.
