Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro are to headline Edinburgh's 2010 Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh, it was announced today.

The band, who have been hailed one of the best festival acts of the year, will play the Concert in the Gardens, the city's New Year fireworks and music spectacular.

The Ayrshire boys, currently in the States on tour, are sure to receive a warm welcome when they take to the stage in the Scottish capital. With anthems such as Mountains, Who’s got a Match? and The Captain, Biffy Clyro are sure to rock Edinburgh well into the New Year.

Councillor Steve Cardownie, a spokesman for the city's events and festivals told reporters: 'Edinburgh's Hogmanay is envied across the world and this year, with Biffy Clyro set to perform, there will be no better place to be to bring in the new year.'

Tickets for the garden gig are to go on sale at 9am on Friday, while passes for Edinburgh's Hogmanay Street Party, which features live music, giant screens, and midnight fireworks are already available in the UK and abroad.

The Concert in the Gardens begins at 9pm and runs through the bells until 1am in 2011. Ticket prices start at £40 to be within the enclosure, £35 for access to the gardens, and £15 for the Street Party.

Previous Hogmanay headline acts include Madness, Groove Armada, Kasabian, Scissor Sisters, Blondie, and Calvin Harris.
