Edinburgh's Hogmanay Street Party

Edinburgh's Hogmanay on New Year's Eve

The Street Party (tickets, review) is perhaps the best-known event in the 3-day Edinburgh's Hogmanay Festival. The New Year street party is a ticketed event that in 2019-2020 runs for seven hours the length of Princes Street, with live bands, a carnival atmosphere and dancing in the street.

Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Virgin arches on the Royal Mile

The Edinburgh International Festival may have come first, but generally it's the Fringe that Edinburgh is best-known for. There's really nothing quite like it - "the largest show on Earth".

The stats bear that out: 2019 will see 3,841 shows in 323 venues across Scotland’s capital city. It's a sprawling, anarchic, sleepless month of live performances. There are hundreds of free shows and pay-what-you-want shows at the Fringe as well.

Knockengorroch’s annual city session will smash it again with the international ground breaking A Tribe Called Red.
