[b]Idlewild[/b] have already been confirmed as one of the support acts at the party in Princes Street Gardens in the city.
Kasabian front man [b]Tom Meighan[/b] declared: “It is an honour to be asked to play Hogmanay this year. Scotland is always a special place to play and New Year’s Eve will be even more special. We promise.”
Edinburgh Hogmanay’s director of events Pete Irvine said: “We’re delighted we’ve got another strong line-up for the Concert In The Gardens.
Although we’ve altered the formula a bit from previous years, there’s no question the Gardens will rock.”
More artists for the concert are due to be revealed in the next few days.
Edinburgh’s Hogmanay this year is a four-day festival, including street parties, candle lighting as well as a Viking Torch procession.
