The Edinburgh Street Party is perhaps the best-known event in Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Festival calendar. The New Year street party is a ticketed event that takes place the length of Princes Street, with live bands, dancing in the street, and street theatre troupes mingling with crowds.

The street party climaxes with the bells of Big Ben at midnight, and a dramatic fireworks display above Edinburgh Castle to herald in the New Year. This is followed by a joining of hands as the crowd sings Auld Lang Syne, a kissathon, and more partying into the wee wee hours both on the street and around the city.
