Organisers of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay are today delighted to announce that Biffy Clyro will headline the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 2015/16 Concert in the Gardens.
The band will make an exclusive UK appearance this year at the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay event and will be joined by very special guests Idlewild and Honeyblood in a very strong all-Scottish line-up.
Biffy Clyro headlined the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay event in 2010 and now, five big years later, they will be bringing their explosive live show to Princes Street Gardens for what promises to be an unforgettable New Year celebration. This will be the band’s one and only UK performance of 2015 and will be the stage from which they will kick off 2016 and what is being lined up to be an absolutely huge year for them.
Biffy Clyro said ‘We are so happy to come out of musical hibernation to kick off 2016 with the show on Hogmanay. We want to rock off the cobwebs and prepare for the year of da biff!! Nothing can compete with Edinburgh’s celebrations and we hope to make it a special night for everyone!!’
