Street party headliners unveiled

The Enemy
The Enemy will headline the Waverley Stage alongside young Scottish bands

The organisers of Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations have announced that The Enemy are to headline this year's street party.

The Coventry-based rock band's debut album "We'll Live and Die in These Towns" went straight to number one when it was released in 2007.

They will be joined on the stage by some of Scotland's best new bands.

It had already been announced that Madness would top the bill at the Concert in the Gardens event.

The Waverley Stage, which will feature Frightened Rabbit, Stanley Odd and We Were Promised Jet Packs as well as The Enemy, will be hosted by BBC Radio Scotland's Vic Galloway.

The Cuban Brothers and Glitter Banditz, who will present an evening of "music and mayhem" at The Mound Party Stage, will be hosted by guest DJ The Great Calverto.

While the West End DJ Stage will feature Mylo and special DJ sets from members of Snow Patrol and Belle & Sebastian.

Pete Irvine, creative director for Edinburgh's Hogmanay, said: "We're delighted to announce such strong line-ups for the Street Party - great indie music at The Waverley Stage, great party music on The Party Stage at the top of The Mound and fantastic DJs at the West End DJ Stage.

"Together with one of the UK's biggest firework display, lasers and the atmosphere and friendliness that you simply don't get anywhere else, this years Edinburgh's Hogmanay is shaping up to be the city's strongest line-up for years."
