Aberdeen Festivals


About Us

True North. Sound. Spectra. Look Again. Even the names of our festivals conjure up a different kind of place and it’s true to say that our festivals are especially rooted here, in our people, in our culture and in our very location.

Now in its fifth year, Aberdeen Festivals looks forward to representing 10 of the region’s major cultural festivals. The festivals will work alongside each other to collaborate on one-off performances, grow audiences and strengthen Aberdeen’s cultural sector.

Aberdeen Festivals is made up of some of the biggest and best festivals Scotland has to offer. With world class performances and international premiers, the diversity of festivals will run throughout 2018, showcasing the best talent from arts and science to music and dance.
