Aberdeen International Youth Festival
One of the biggest and most successful gatherings of young talent in the world is taking place across 10 days from 26 July to 3 August.
Groups from across the globe will be meeting in Aberdeen to perform dance, theatre, opera and world music. AIYF offers workshops and master-classes for upcoming talent to learn skills from industry professionals, from classical, traditional, indie and jazz genres of arts.
This year is the 40th Anniversary of AIYF and sees ‘Spotlight Sessions’ being held to shine a light on emerging young professional talent in the UK. The young professionals showcased by Creative Scotland will work together to inspire amateur individuals and groups in workshops for young people in and around Aberdeen.
The musical and theatrical acts will burst on to the streets of Aberdeen mixing traditional Scottish culture with international arts. The acts will spill on to the streets alongside the shoppers on 27 July from 1pm. Be sure to drop your shopping and join in with the festivities!
