Local Gig Venues

Local Gig Venues

Here at Singing Lessons Aberdeen we encourage our students to get inspired by international performers singing here in Scotland. They are also hugely encouraged to get involved in the local music scene to meet like minded people and improve their own performing skills.

Unfortunately Aberdeen has been slowly losing some of its greatest music venues. One of its greatest losses, particularly for younger people is the closure of the Aberdeen Student's Union. Students Unions are traditionally a fantastic place to see bands ranging from small, up and coming local bands to getting cheap tickets to established musicians. Seeing your favourite musicians live is a fantastic way of inspiring students to start taking lessons or take their singing further so it is a real shame that so many local venues have been closing down. 

Hving said that, here are some current gig venues in Aberdeen:

The Tunnels

Since opening in Janiary 2005, the Tunnels has quickly established itself as one of the best live music venues not just in Aberdeen but in Sctorland. The venue's aim was to provide a platform for new, exciting bands from different places and different genres. The 300 person venue has hosted plenty of household names including Kate Nash, Funeral for a Friend, The Kooks, Frank Turner, Enter Shikari and many many more. They also host regular club nights from a range of local and national DJs. 

The Lemon Tree

The Lemon Tree is a buzzing alternative entertainment venue on North Street in Aberdeen. Their 550 capacity lounge hosts a range of musicians and comedians. In terms of bands, they tend to host smaller, more alternative bands inbetween being home to theatre companies and other shows, 


Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre is a huge venue fo the North of Scotland who's recently refurbished arena can hold up to 8500 people! The arena has previously played host to the likes of Elton John, Arctic Monkeys, The Script and even the X-Factor tour!
