Scottish rock band Tide Lines will headline the New Year’s Day 2023 Final Fling in Princes Street Garden.

Taking place on the final day of Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations, the gig will also include Elephant Sessions and Edinburgh singer-songwriter Hamish Hawk.

Glasgow based Tide Lines, whose members all hail from the Highlands and Hebrides, have built up a strong Scottish following since their debut single in 2016. They recently announced a new album ‘An Ocean Full of Islands’ is to be released on 24th February 2023.

Tide Lines said: “Playing ‘The Final Fling’ event on New Year’s Day as part of the iconic celebrations in Edinburgh will be a massive honour for us. It’s the perfect way to begin a year where we will release our third album and set off on our biggest UK tour to date. We can’t wait to play for an international audience in a world-famous setting!”

Elephant Sessions, who formed in 2012, have won the BBC Scots Trad Music Awards Album of the Year in 2017, as well as 2018 Live Act of the Year, and received nominations for the SAY Awards and Best Group in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Edinburgh's own Hamish Hawk has established himself as a writer of heartfelt, headstrong, and unashamedly literate songs.

The Final Fling on Sunday 1 January 2023 tops off a day of free events and live performances taking place in attractions, venues, and pubs throughout the capital's Old Town and New Town.

Tickets for the Final Fling go on sale tomorrow at 10.00am (Friday 28 October), priced at £35.00 (inc. fees) for the Enclosure and £27.50 (inc. fees) for the Gardens.
