Edinburgh is early getting ready to welcome the new year in style with the Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party with a packed programme of events. The tickets for the festival have started to sell out. Edinburgh Hogmanay is entering into the 18th year of celebration.
Edinburgh is recognised globally as the Home of Hogmanay. The city welcomed 80,000 revellers last year to celebrate New Year in style at the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party, attracting visitors from over 60 countries. This time with the addition of an all new music stage at the East-end, the Street Party offers a full festival programme of music over four stages. The giant screens as well as the spectacular Midnight Fireworks are set against the dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle and the world’s largest ‘Auld Lang Syne’ bringing in the New Year.
