The May Festival, established in 2013, aims to be diverse and dynamic, showcasing the world-class research being undertaken at the University of Aberdeen. We also welcome some famous faces to the city, so look out for performances from your favourite authors, chefs, musicians and more.
This all encompassing arts and science festival offers over 100 events each year across 3 days with a variety of themes including sports, film, science and Gaelic. May Festival attracts all ages with thought-provoking events for adults as well as a fun-filled family and children’s events to keep the little ones amused.
Most events take place on our beautiful, historic University campus as well as at some partner venues around Aberdeen city centre. With a vibrant atmosphere, bustling crowds and spectacular events – it is a great way to spend a weekend!
