soundfestival 2018 invites you on a journey of discovery, exploring new music which challenges and crosses the boundaries of contemporary classical, electro-acoustic, improvised, experimental and jazz music.

The festival features a large number of concerts held in iconic venues as well as intimate spaces across Aberdeen Aberdeenshire, allowing audiences to experience innovative events in a variety of atmospheric settings. Festival attendees are encouraged to realise new music through lunchtime performances, promenade concerts, late night soundsessions as well as more traditional performances.

sound continues to triumph, demonstrating that imaginative, cutting-edge yet accessible programming and inspired commissioning can produce radical results.”  - Jane Grieve, The Scotsman 2015

There is always something new: something to enlarge your experience; something to expand your worldview; something to enjoy, that you wouldn't otherwise have encountered...there is nothing like it." - Audience feedback 2016
