North Hop Returns To Aberdeen With Biggest Ever Festival

Posted:
5 May 2022

North Hop, the much-loved craft beer, craft spirits and street food festival is set to make a welcome return to Aberdeen later this year – the first large-scale North Hop Festival to take place since 2018.

Hopping into Aberdeen’s P&J Live on Saturday 24th September 2022, the festival will feature a wide range of Scottish breweries, bars, makers, and street food stalls, offering tantalizingly tasty treats during two Saturday sessions – 1pm to 5pm or 6pm to 10pm.

Ticketholders will have the chance to meet Scottish craft beer and spirit makers with a wide array of gin, vodka, rum and botanical spirits on offer, as well as some amazing cocktails. Live music from a range of up-and-coming Scottish acts will entertain, ranging from acoustic artists to live bands.

Michelle Russell, North Hop Festival Director, says: “We can’t wait to see the much-anticipated return of a large-scale North Hop after what has been four long years. Known for its barn-like styling, relaxed vibe and friendly atmosphere, we are so pleased to launch our biggest ever festival – back better than ever! It’s just what we all need after two years of staying home – a summer to remember with friends, packed full of all the finest food, drink and music Scotland has to offer.

“We have an incredible line-up of food and drink producers this year, which will be announced over the coming months, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy. From rare specialist distillers to bigger well-known and loved brands, it’s set to be a wonderful day out.”

Ticketholders will also receive the famous North Hop glass on entry – something that has become somewhat of a collectable item since the festival’s inaugural event in 2014.

Claire-Lena Miller-Davis, Exhibition Sales Manager at P&J Live, says, “It’s fantastic to see the return of North Hop Festival – something which was incredibly popular when it was hosted back at Aberdeen’s AECC. This is the first summer that we can enjoy freely with no covid restrictions, and we can’t wait to make the most of it.”

Tickets, priced £18 + fees go on general sale tomorrow - Friday 6th May 2022 at 9am on www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

North Hop Aberdeen is for persons 18 years and over.
