Organisers of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay have announced that Biffy Clyro will headline the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 2015/16 Concert in the Gardens, joined by Idlewild and Honeyblood in a very strong all-Scottish line-up.
This will be Biffy Clyro’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!!”
Pete Irvine, Director of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, said “We reckon it’s a real coup that Biffy have chosen Edinburgh’s Hogmanay not only for their first outing of 2015 but also to launch what looks like a very special year for them. Their stand-out performance two years ago headlining T in the Park reminded us that they are one of the most exciting live bands ever to come out of Scotland. Biffy have built a big international following and headlining an impressive Scottish line-up at Concert in the Gardens will please both the Scots and our audience who come from over 70 countries.”
