As the bells ring out the old year, live events magnate Underbelly will encourage audiences to ‘be together’ at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 2019, marking the 27th edition of the city’s iconic New Year party.
The festivities kick off on Mon 30 December with the annual Torchlight Procession, which will see a cast of thousands create a procession of blazing light, pipes and drums down to Holyrood Park, where they’ll forge an outline of two people holding hands, symbolising the theme and intent of this year’s festival. Afterwards, a line-up of local bands will perform for the crowd, before the evening is capped off with a fireworks display. Also on Monday, the stately McEwan Hall will house the return of Symphonic Ibiza, as DJ Andy Joyce leads the 20-piece Scottish Pops Orchestra through a stirring rendition of club anthems from the famous party island.
On New Year’s Eve, Hogmanay’s family-focused early evening event Bairns Afore will this year be headlined by much-beloved children’s TV presenters Dick and Dom, who will be bringing a healthy dose of their trademark anarchy to their show DJ Battle, which will see Dick and Dom go head-to-head at the desks in a musical showdown unlike any other. After much revelry, families will then get to have their ‘midnight moment’ together with a fireworks display at 6pm, in time to get the little ones to bed.
