Edinburgh’s Hogmanay is where the world comes to party! Join the globe’s greatest New Year celebration for three days of spectacular events including the legendary Street Party featuring live music, DJs, street entertainment and the ultimate fireworks display from Edinburgh Castle. The Concert in the Gardens will be headlined by Rag’n’Bone Man this year and guarantees the best views of the midnight fireworks.Specially for the start of the Year of Young People 2018, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay puts the young people of Scotland centre stage during the stunning annual Torchlight Procession on 30 December. National engagement campaign #Scotword calls on them to choose one word which best answers the question - “What makes you proud to live in Scotland?”
After blazing a new path with the river of light weaving its way through the historic heart of the city, around Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament, the procession will culminate in a stunning visual moment in Holyrood Park, as the #ScotWord is revealed through torchlight.
