Live bands and DJ’s playing the best alternative, traditional and party music fill the Edinburgh streets, as the city centre comes alive with festivities and revellers.

Highlighted as one of the ‘Top 100 things to do before you die’ and recently the only #festival to appear in the ‘Discovery Channel – Top 25 World Travel Experiences’, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party is one of the world’s greatest New Year celebrations.

We will gather in Old Town 19:30, then head over to the street party later in the evening. Street party finishes about 1 am so will probably have a flat party afterwards!

Don’t forget to buy your tickets for the street party!
#Ticket Price £ 25.00
