Mark Ronson and electro-pop band Friendly Fires have been added to the line-up for one of the world's most famous street parties.

Event chiefs said partygoers would be "dazzled" by the biggest-ever selection of music at Edinburgh's Hogmanay event this year.

Primal Scream had previously been announced as the headline act at the Concert in the Gardens, supported by Bombay Bicycle Club.

Organisers have now announced a raft of additions to the line-up, including Mark, who has produced albums for the likes of Amy Winehouse, Adele and Robbie Williams.

There will also be a Celtic world stage for the first time, where Scottish bands Peatbog Faeries and Capercaillie will play.

Up to 80,000 revellers from around the world are expected to head to the Scottish capital to enjoy the Street Party, Keilidh and Concert in the Gardens.

There will be music across seven stages and two fireworks displays from either end of Princes Street to welcome in the new year.

Ronson will be on the East End DJ stage, Friendly Fires will play on the West End stage and Cuban Brothers will be at the Mound.

Other acts playing include Kassidy, X-Factor's Jade Richards and Radio 1 DJs Jaymo & Andy George.
