! EARLY BIRDS TIX FINISHED !

! Second Release Tickets On Sale Now !

! Final Release due April 15th !

The Big Beach Ball 2012 is the first edition of a new annual event taking

place at Aberdeen Beach Ballroom and surrounding area. Snuggled along the

Promenade with sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, this one day

festival will open it's doors 1pm-midnight, Bank Holiday Sunday 6th May,

closing with after parties across town until the early hours.

On a picturesque coast of Scotland, once crowned the UK’s sunniest city by

the Met Office (yes really), Aberdeen opens the summer season at one of

our most iconic, historic and underused locations. With a total capacity

of around 2,000 music fans, The Big Beach Ball utilizes the Ballroom like

never before.

International artists, world renowned DJs, the cream of Scottish bands and

party starters, vintage clothing markets, craft stalls, food and drink on

site supplied by local restaurateurs and chefs, boutique cocktails and

numerous bars across the arena are just the beginning…

This is unquestionably the first of its kind for the North East, giving

the region an event it has craved for years, helping to revitalize

Aberdeen Sea Front with cutting edge production and worldwide attention.

!!! FIRST ACTS ANNOUNCED !!!
