Hundreds of music fans are expected to descend on a north-east village next month to enjoy the sights and sounds of a popular festival.
The Pitmedden Music Festival offers up a range of live acts amid the scenic surroundings of Pitmedden Garden.
The popularity of the event has sky-rocketed in recent years, with more than 1,800 people, young and old, turning out across the weekend to take in a variety of live performances, from silver bands to Celtic rock.
The festival, which is organised by volunteers, is funded through various grants and sponsorship from local organisations, including Udny Community Wind Turbine and North Sea oil and gas giant, Apache.
And organisers have promised this year’s event will be another eclectic offering.
Angie Stemp, festival director, said: “We have another great programme of music and entertainment planned this year with something for everyone. I can’t wait for the gates to open.”
As well as the music, there will also be food, a beer tent, bouncy castles, and beat the goalie with Highland League side Formartine United.
There will also be music workshops and puppet shows for the youngsters in attendance.
The festival even offers the full camping experience, with a site for tents close to the garden available for overnight stays.
The event gets under way on the evening of June 3, with country music from Colin Clyne, rock and pop covers from Voodoo Vibe, and the Oxbow Lake Band.
A full programme of live entertainment continues the following day, including performances from the Bon Accord Silver Band, and Druminaboot, an African drum group.
Celtic rockers Gleadhraih will bring the curtain down on the event.
Pitmedden Gardens is managed by the National Trust for Scotland, which is a major supporter of the festival.
