Submitted by edg on Mon, 29 Aug '11 9.51am

Edinburgh's Hogmanay is teaming up with the Fringe Office this year to sell tickets for the New Year festivities. Tickets can be bought in person at the Fringe Office, telephone, or online from 9am on 1st September (see buying Edinburgh's Hogmanay tickets).

The Concert in the Gardens, under Edinburgh Castle, is the climax of the multi-day Edinburgh's Hogmanay Festival that includes the Torchlight Procession, The Keilidh, and the Loony Dook.

Kath Mainland, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Fringe said: "The Fringe box office regularly combines selling tickets online, by telephone and over the counters. This will allow Hogmanay tickets to be sold both to the local audience here in Edinburgh and to fans from around the world."

Pete Irvine, Artistic Director of Edinburgh's Hogmanay said: "We are the next big festival in the city and we believe that many of the international audience for the Fringe are the same people who will want to come back to celebrate the new year in Edinburgh."
