Edinburgh announces New Year line-up
Organisers of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay have announced a Scottish line up for the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party. It's the 21st birthday of the famous event which will welcome 80,000 revellers to the centre of the capital on Tuesday 31 December 2013.
The Waverley Stage will see a headline performance from Django Django, whose first self-titled album has been shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year. They will be joined on the Waverley Stage by Glasgow synth-pop outfit Chvrches and by perennial party favourites The Rezillos.
The Scottish Stage features Fife’s Mercury Nominated King Creosote, plus special guests the Shetland collective Fiddlers’ Bid and Treacherous Orchestra while at the ever-popular Keilidh Stage revellers will be dancing to Hugh McDairmid’s Haircut, Black Rose Ceilidh Band and Box Fizz.
Kenny Anderson, aka King Creosote, said "Pour yourselves a dram from those hip flasks, get ready to break open the black bun, but keep the coals tight in hand for King Creosote and his band are about to extinguish any lingering triskaidekaphobia in the run up to the bells of 2014."
The early bird ticket offer for Edinburgh Residents will close on 31 October. Until then, anyone living in an EH postcode can buy their Street Party ticket for the reduced price of £16. The full programme for Edinburgh’s Hogmanay will be announced on Tuesday 12 November 2013.
