Repeatedly name-checked as one of the top 100 things to do before you die, three days of spectacular events, big bands and electrified crowds from every corner of the globe come together in Edinburgh every year for one of the world’s biggest and best New Year’s Eve celebrations. See Shetland Vikings bearing fire lit torches, hear beautiful choral singing in St Giles’ Cathedral, enjoy birling to traditional Scottish music in the Old Town, and watch incredible fireworks from Princes Street Gardens. In years gone by, 150,000 revellers from over 70 countries have even been known to join hands for the world’s biggest rendition of Auld Lang Syne! This year’s packed programme includes pioneering British 80s electronic band The Human League headlining the Waverley Stage. Treacherous Orchestra, Barns Courtney, Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 on the East End Stage. And frontman of American rock/hip hop band Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Huey Morgan, on the Castle Street Stage.
