Inverness, the heart of the Scottish Highlands, is gearing up to host what is anticipated to be the world’s most significant Hogmanay ceilidh. The city will echo with the sounds of Scotland’s top traditional musicians and singers, creating an unforgettable New Year’s Eve celebration.

The procession will culminate at the Northern Meeting Park, setting the stage for an epic night of revelry.
Leader of Inverness and Area Councillor Ian Brown emphasized the interactive nature of this year’s event. “We want people to truly engage with the essence of Hogmanay. Scotland’s Finest Ceilidh band, Highland Fire, featuring local talents Calum MacPhail and Sean Cousins, will keep the dance floor alive. Moments of rest will be filled with the finest tunes from Scotland’s traditional music scene.”
The star-studded lineup includes Skipinnish’s Norrie MacIver, Scots Trad Music Award winner Siobhan Miller, and instrumental fireworks by Ali Hutton and Ross Ainslie, joined by Ewan Robertson from the award-winning Breabach.
The Provost of Inverness, Cllr Glynis Campbell Sinclair, highlighted the significance of tradition and unity during Hogmanay. “Inverness Hogmanay 2023/24 is a return to the roots of Hogmanay, where the spirit of the traditional ceilidh reigns supreme. Dances intertwined with guest performances will bring people together to reflect on the past year and embrace the promise of the next.”
