True North Festival 2018

A very special tribute to the music of David Bowie is set to be a highlight of Aberdeen’s True North festival, which takes place over the weekend of September 20-23.

True North is Aberdeen’s music festival – located at the heart of the city, and features the contemporary music industry’s most interesting, relevant and exciting artists.  This year, Irish musician, vocalist and actress Camille O’Sullivan, who is renowned for her theatrical performances and stunning vocals,  has created ‘Lady Stardust’, a specially curated one-night only concert at His Majesty’s Theatre on Sunday, September 23 celebrating the Thin White Duke.

Camille will be joined for the concert by a stellar line-up up featuring Duke Special, Eliza Carthy, Kathryn Williams, Cathal Couglan, Christopher Green and Paul Noonan, plus a special performance by Game of Thrones and Peaky Blinders star Aiden Gillen as they celebrate one of the most innovative, charismatic and talented musicians of all time and the writer of such iconic hits as Life On Mars, Space Oddity, Changes, Oh! You Pretty Things, Starman, Heroes and Rebel Rebel.

True North’s much-loved celebration night has been described as “a jewel of a festival show” and always leaves audiences wanting more, having in previous years paid homage to the work of Kate Bush, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac. Now a highly anticipated focal point of the True North programme, this year ‘Lady Stardust’ will provide a unique opportunity to celebrate one of the most illustrious songwriters in history, with Bowie’s work reimagined, reinterpreted and celebrated by top musical talent.
