Aberdeen Beach Ballroom & Surrounds
2013! The Big Beach Ball returns for a second year!
This Bank Holiday May Weekend, on a picturesque coast once crowned the UK’s sunniest city, Aberdeen opens the festival season at one of the country’s most iconic locations. Held in and around the historic Aberdeen Beach Ballroom and building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, The Big Beach Ball 2013 is going to be even bigger and even better.
Snuggled beside the Promenade’s sandy beaches, our boutique one day festival enters it’s second year with a bang and we are taking things up a gear – presenting a forward thinking audio and visual feast for electronic music lovers, a serious destination for live music fans and a fantastic Bank Holiday day out with food stalls, indoor market, Tiki Bars, bespoke cocktails, stand up comedy, face painting and more.
Inside the Beach Ballroom revelers can party in the stunning setting or enjoy dancing and drinking in our electric outdoor atmosphere that this year’s line-up of international, artists, DJs and bands will provide.
Here we go again!!
