Street Party

31 December 2018, 7.30pm

The world’s best New Year street party.

From 7:30pm Edinburgh will throw open its doors to the world. Join us as bands, DJs, street performers and dancers, acrobats, disco divas and fire eaters will all combine across multiple stages and on the streets to make it the party of a lifetime.

At midnight, the ultimate fireworks display will mark the end of the old year and usher in 2019 set against the iconic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.
