True North Music Festival 23-26 Sep 2021

True North is a music festival presented by Aberdeen Performing Arts.

Now in it’s 7th year, we were delighted to be back over the 23 – 26 Sep 2021.


True North Music Festival, 23-26 Sep 2021

True North was held in September 2021 with the theme of rising up to mark the return of live music and standing up for what you believe in. We celebrated freedom of expression, diversity, community and equality with an inspirational and vibrant line up of musicians over one unforgettable weekend.

Whether you are discovering new artists or immersing yourself in the music of an icon, it was the first major festival back in the city since lockdown and was great to be back!
