Street Party

31 December 2017, 7.00pm

Say to the world... I WAS THERE. At the BEST. PARTY. EVER! Join people from around the world to bring in the New Year at one of the world's biggest and best outdoor parties with live music, DJs, street entertainment and the ultimate fireworks display from Edinburgh Castle. 

From 7pm, Edinburgh will throw open its doors to the world. Join us at the three Street Party stages and other stages up and down Princes Street to celebrate the New Year in the heart of the city.

From the moment the doors open at 7pm, till after the midnight bells have fallen silent, bands and DJs, street performers and dancers, acrobats, disco divas and fire eaters will all combine to make it the party of a lifetime. Every great party needs a host and we’re delighted that the 2018 Street Party will be hosted by Sanjeev Kohli (Still Game, BBC).

At midnight, the ultimate fireworks display will mark the end of the old year and usher in 2018 set against the iconic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

The full line-up for the Street Party stages will be announced in September.
