Aberdeen Festivals welcomes new members for the first time | Aberdeen Festivals

December 16, 2015

Following an open call for applications from city based festivals, Aberdeen Festivals has announced three new members will be joining its ranks for 2016.

A leading cultural driving force in the region, the Aberdeen Festivals group emerged at the start of 2015 and was set up to promote festivals, develop audiences and strengthen the cultural sector in Aberdeen and the North-east.

For its 2016 roster of top festivals the group has now  welcomed SPECTRA, Look Again and True North to be part of the 2016 collective.

The three new additions will join the existing portfolio of festivals, including; Aberdeen Jazz Festival, May Festival, Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF), TechFest, North–East Open Studios (NEOS), DanceLive and Sound.

Kicking off Aberdeen’s 2016 calendar of festivals is SPECTRA, known as Aberdeen’s Festival of Light, taking place from February 11 to 14.  The next new addition is Look Again Festival, a Visual Art and Design Festival that encourages audiences to ‘Become a tourist in your own city.’ It takes place from 28 April – May 2.
