sound invites you on a sonic adventure where you can explore new music which excites, intrigues and isn't restricted by the notion of boundaries.

soundfestival events take place across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Working collaboratively and in partnership with other organisations, sound programmes new music, including but not limited to contemporary classical, improvised, experimental, jazz and electroacoustic as well as cross art form concerts, workshops, installations and exhibitions.

Through lunchtime performances, promenade concerts, late night soundsessions and more traditional performances, sound events can be found in a range of settings from concert halls and arts centres to lighthouses, museums, churches, bothies and pubs.
