What you need to know about our busiest festival month
True North. North East Open Studios. TechFest. Even the names of our next three Aberdeen Festivals get us excited! This September music, art, science and culture will all be uniquely celebrated in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire!
With world class performances, educational activities made fun as well as some of the most talented artists in the region, the diversity of our September festivals will showcase the best talent from arts to science and music...
True North –our festival of music and song – celebrates the North-east's singer songwriter tradition and provides a platform for the very best music and song, from ballads to contemporary classics. The 2017 festival line-up has been announced, with headliners including Public Service Broadcasting, Scott Hutchison & Kathryn Joseph, Wild Beasts and Arab Stap - along with an unmissable celebration of Fleetwood Mac's iconic album Rumours, from Start to End!
233 local artists and makers will open their studio doors to the public as part of one of the largest Open Studios events in the UK! This year, skills demonstrated cover many different art forms from painting, textiles and heritage crafts to digital art, jewellery, ceramics and photography. Be inspired by what you see and there may even be an opportunity to have a go and create your own personal work of art! This is a unique opportunity to see creative juices flowing in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire!
Ever thought about the science behind everyday life? TechFest includes some of the most quirky and innovative events in town. For laugh-out-loud and hair-raising fun, join the Horrible Science Show. And if you think this doesn’t sound like it’s for you...join 10 Dollar Shake as they talk you through a very scientific whisky tasting; go on an exclusive tour of LoneWolf or visit FIERCE Beer’s microbrewery! You can even find out why mathematics might play a part in not having a boyfriend; make a 3D selfie; and find out if you really can die of a broken heart!
