Tickets for the world famous Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party will go on sale tomorrow, Friday 17 July 2015 at 10.00am. Last year a sell-out 75,000 revellers from over 70 countries joined the New Year’s Eve celebrations in the capital and organisers promise another stellar line-up to party into 2016 with a new Street Party experience including additional entertainment and increased arena space for crowds to ‘bring in the bells’.
Revellers can soak up the festival atmosphere, when the city centre comes alive with live music and DJs from multiple stages, giant screens and attractions throughout the arena. Set against the historic Edinburgh Castle, the hourly Teaser Fireworks will launch the celebrations at 9pm until the spectacular Midnight Moment. A coordinated Countdown to the Bells before the magnificent Midnight Fireworks see over six tonnes of pyrotechnics launch from the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle and Calton Hill, with images beamed to TV screens around the world to an estimated audience of over 1 billion people. Back on the street the traditional singing of Auld Lang Syne, described as Scotland’s gift to the world, will help welcome in the New Year at the ‘Home of Hogmanay’.
Paul Bush, Director of Events at VisitScotland, said “Edinburgh’s Hogmanay is an ambassador for Scotland, showcasing Edinburgh as the Home of Hogmanay all round the world. With visitors from over 70 countries, Hogmanay promotes Scotland as an all year round visitor destination and the Perfect Stage for Events.”
