Live bands and djs fill the Edinburgh streets with music, as the city centre comes alive with festivities and party people from all over the world gather to bring in 2017 in style

What it's all about

The Waverley Stage will be headlined by music legends The Charlatans.  With a career spanning four decades, the band have provided the soundtrack to a generation with all of their twelve studio albums charting in the Top 40 in the UK, three of them being number ones, the Street Party can expect a hit-packed set to welcome the New Year. The Charlatans will be joined by special guests to be announced shortly.
Tim Burgess said “Nowhere in the world sees in the New Year like Scotland. I've been to Edinburgh before for Hogmanay and it's always brilliant. Looking forward to another big night.

Party people from all over the world gather to bring in the New Year at one of the world's biggest outdoor parties under the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. Join us at any of our 4 Street Party Stages on 31st of December!  

Our Celtic inspired stage, Castle Stage features exhilarating performances from leading Scottish Celtic crossover bands Salsa Celtica, Manran, Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton.

Providing the heart-thumping, disco dancing, sing-a-long classics on our party stage, Frederick Stage is returning DJ's, dancers and all round legends Guilty Pleasures! If you think banging tunes and dancing is enough, you're wrong! 

Accompanying them are VJ’s Buttercup and Pixel mixing cutting-edge visuals for all your snap-happy needs!

We're delighted this year to announce the Mound Stage, programmed in collaboration with the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, will feature Edinburgh favourites James Brown is Annie, Brass Gumbo and Blues n Trouble
