Primal Scream and Bombay Bicycle Club are also on the bill
Primal Scream will headline the December 31 event, playing their 1991 album ‘Screamadelica’ in full for the last time, as well as a host of their greatest hits.

Steve Cardownie, organizer of the event, said of the bookings: “Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party is the place to be to bring in the New Year. This year partygoers will be dazzled by a truly sensational line-up of bands and artists on more stages than ever before.”
Friendly Fires play their biggest UK tour to date next month, playing 12 dates in support of their second album ‘Pala’, which they released earlier this year.
