Berlin (dpa) - Scissor Sisters are to headline this year's New Year's Eve party in Berlin, one of the world's biggest events marking the turn of the year, organizers said Monday.

More than 1 million visitors are expected for the festivities, which will include light and laser performances as well as a spectacular fireworks display at midnight.

The gigantic party will take place at Brandenburg Gate, where mammoth crowds gathered to watch this summer's football World Cup on giant video screens.

There will be three show stages, nine video screens, 10 party tents and more than 100 food and refreshment stands at the New Year's event, which will be beamed to other cities around the world.

The show will open with Bulgarian rock singer Roberta and the Romanian band Sistem. Both countries join the European Union on January 1, the same day that Germany takes over the presidency of the EU.
