Music lovers who travelled from across the world to make an Aberdeen music festival “unforgettable” have been praised by organisers.
Thousands of people – some from as far afield as the US, Japan and Israel – attended events across the city centre between Thursday and Sunday for True North.
More than 40 acts performed at six different venues with The Twilight Sad, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert among those entertaining revellers over the four days.
The festival was brought to a close on Sunday night with Rip It Up Live, which featured the likes of Claire Grogan, King Creosote, Kathryn Joseph and Ross Leighton from Fatherson covering some of their favourite Scottish pop songs.
Meanwhile a number of more interactive events for youngsters, including My First Gig and the Project Band songwriting camp, were held to encourage them to consider carving out a future in the music industry.
Jane Spiers, chief executive of festival organiser Aberdeen Performing Arts, said: “We’ve had a real international audience, with people travelling to Aberdeen from all over the world to enjoy the festival.
“Having the Music Hall back for this year’s True North has meant that we had more performance spaces, giving us the freedom to programme a truly varied range of acts.”
She added: “There have been so many special moments.
“Our headline acts have been outstanding this year, the Lemon Tree has had amazing, energetic performances every night, and on top of that it’s wonderful to see so many new and up and coming musicians and singers given a platform to perform.”
