In a stunning upset, the Aberdeen Festival has been named Music Event of the Year, beating out longstanding favorites such as Coachella and Glastonbury. The festival, which takes place every summer in Scotland’s picturesque northeastern city, is known for its eclectic mix of indie rock, folk, and electronic music.
This year’s festival drew record crowds, with over 100,000 music fans descending on Aberdeen to catch acts like Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, and Daft Punk. The event was praised for its organization, with attendees citing easy access to food, water, and restrooms as major highlights.
The win is a major coup for the festival’s organizers, who have been working tirelessly to put Aberdeen on the map as a must-visit destination for music lovers. “We are absolutely over the moon,” said festival director Fiona McDonald. “This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have won.” Plans are already underway for next year’s festival, which promises to be even bigger and better than ever.
