This year’s True North music festival will pay homage to one of the most influential rock bands of the 70s – Fleetwood Mac. The festival, which runs from September 7-10, will also feature performances from cult bands Arab Strap and Public Service Broadcasting.

Singer-songwriter Kathryn Joseph will perform a joint headliner with Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit, while Dutch Uncles, Pictish Trail and Wild Beasts are also on the bill. Headline events will take place at His Majesty’s Theatre, The Lemon Tree and Tivoli Theatre, with further fringe events and support acts to be announced in the coming months.

APA chief executive Jane Spiers said: “Following the unprecedented success of our Celebration of Kate Bush at last year’s True North, I’m excited to announce that we will once again be doffing our hat to one of the most iconic music acts of our time. Our Rumours event will celebrate Fleetwood Mac’s ground-breaking album of that name. 2017 marks 40 years since the release of Rumours and True North will celebrate the band’s masterpiece in full over the course of an inspiring and authentic evening of music which promises to be one of the most defining moments of this year’s festival.”

Rumours will be curated by the hugely gifted Start to End, who specialise in bringing acclaimed albums to the stage. The band will gather together some of the country’s best singers and musicians for the concert on Saturday, September 9 at HMT, which will culminate in a greatest hits set.

True North’s opening concert will come from the enigmatic and inimitable Public Service Broadcasting, who will bring their stunning audio-visual show to HMT on Thursday, September 7. Friday evening’s headline event at the Tivoli Theatre is cult Scottish rock band Arab Strap and on Sunday, it’s an evening with Scott Hutchison and Kathryn Joseph at the Tivoli Theatre.

The Lemon Tree Late line-up will see art-rock group Wild Beasts take to the stage on Thursday night, while Friday night’s Lemon Tree Late will come from art-pop quartet Dutch Uncles. Pictish Trail will bring his unique and hypnotic folk/electro act to the Lemon Tree for the True North After Party on Saturday after Rumours, with guest DJs on hand to get the crowd going.

Ms Spiers added: “Sunday evening’s joint headliner is another highlight – Scott Hutchison and Kathryn Joseph are such charismatic performers and their event will be a stunning showcase of their individual talent. Arab Strap last played Aberdeen over a decade ago, so this is a brilliant chance to see them in the intimate setting of the Tivoli Theatre. The band sold out the Barrowlands last year and I’m sure fans will be quick to snap up tickets this time round. Public Service Broadcasting play with us at True North just before heading off on a major city tour in North America and HMT promises to be the perfect venue for their mesmerising audio-visual extravaganza.”

Tickets for True North are on sale to APA Friends next Wednesday (June 21) and to general bookers on Friday (June 23). Tickets range from £11 to £22 and multi-buy discounts are available. They can be bought online at, in person at the Box Office at HMT or The Lemon Tree, or by phone on (01224) 641122.

A Fringe line-up and support acts for the festival will be announced in the coming weeks, to include a production masterclass and intimate music sessions at the Maritime Museum among other events.
