Basement Jaxx will headline Edinburgh’s Hogmanay.

The electric duo will take to the Ross Bandstand stage under the famous Edinburgh Castle backdrop to perform smash hits from their DJ set, including Where’s Your Head At, Romeo, Do Your Thing and Oh My Gosh.

The pair – Felix Burton and Simon Ratcliffe – will also provide a special soundtrack for the world-renowned midnight firework display.

The double Brit and Grammy winners said: “Edinburgh’s Hogmanay is an iconic event known to artists around the world.

“The crowds in Edinburgh are always full of atmosphere and we know it will be a special night heading into 2022.”

Scottish DJ and presenter Arielle Free will also join the Party at the Bells.

Charlie Wood and Ed Bartlam, Underbelly co-directors, said: “Basement Jaxx are world-class DJs and we’re bringing them to Edinburgh for the biggest night of the year.

“Nothing brings people together like live music and, after a year like no other, we can’t wait to see them on stage in Edinburgh, helping us to see 2021 out in style.”

Edinburgh’s Hogmanay – which moved online in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic – will return this winter as a four-day festival.

As well as a torchlight procession, there will also be a street party on Princes Street and musical performances at Greyfriars Kirk featuring the likes of Dougie Maclean, Eddi Reader and Breabach.
