Summerhall is joining the Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh this year with the greatest karaoke night there is – Massaoke.
After becoming one of the hottest tickets at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe over the past few years, Massaoke has held a monthly residency at Summerhall since September, continuing the party as the winter draws in. What better way then to usher in 2018.
Bringing together one of the tightest live bands with a repertoire of classic “I love this song!” bangers from the 80s through to the 00s, Massaoke’s goal is simple – to inspire everyone in the room to dance, jump, and sing until their voices go hoarse, a testament to the transformative power of a good chorus. DJs will be spinning tunes into the wee hours, and as ever, drinks from Summerhall’s on-site brewery, Barney’s, and gin distillery, Pickering’s, will be flowing.
For those looking to avoid jostling for position on The Royal Mile to catch a glimpse of a firework at midnight, or if you’d rather sing Livin’ On A Prayer than Auld Lang Syne, this is the perfect alternative New Year’s celebration.
Live music from 10pm, with DJs from 12.30.
Food will be provided on the night by Shrimpwreck so you can sing along to ‘Rock Lobster’ while you fill up.
This will be a sell-out so make sure to get your tickets quick!
