Hogmanay 2018

Bring in the bells this year at the ultimate Aberdeen street party!

Three top-class musical acts will be the focal point of Aberdeen’s Hogmanay celebrations, closing the city’s festivities in style.

Performing live on stage at Schoolhill from 9pm, the musicians will entertain the crowds on December 31 before a stunning fireworks display at the stroke of midnight from the roof of His Majesty’s Theatre.

First to perform on stage at 9pm will be local favourites Rachael Bisset & Scott Mellis, followed by Celtic rock band Gleadhraich, culminating with ABBA tribute band, Thank You for the Music. Just before midnight the music will end ready for the countdown to a unique fireworks display guaranteed to welcome in 2019 in style.
