Lily Allen to headline Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations

Lily Allen has been announced as the headliner for this year's Edinburgh Hogmanay gig.

The singer will help Scotland usher in bells on December 31 near Edinburgh Castle.

The Brit revealed in a statement that she has always wished to bring in the new year up north, saying:

"I've always wanted to spend Hogmanay in Scotland so the fact that I get to do it this year but performing on-stage in front of a whole load of people up for the best time makes it extra special. I can't wait!"

Pete Irvine, Artistic Director of Edinburgh's Hogmanay, added: "We are delighted to announce Lily Allen to headline Edinburgh's Hogmanay in this the final week of the world's largest arts festival Edinburgh's Festival Fringe. Lily has had a great year headlining summer festivals, playing all over the world and now we welcome her to the Home of Hogmanay. Edinburgh's Hogmanay is THE New Year party, Lily is THE party girl."

More acts for the event are due to be announced soon. Tickets will go on sale from August 22.
