Bring in the bells at our open air stage in Schoolhill for the ultimate Aberdeen street party.  With live music from the Mersey Beatles and The Banjo Lounge 4, before a spectacular fireworks display from His Majesty's Theatre rooftop at midnight - you don't want to miss the best party in town!

The Banjo Lounge 4

The Banjo Lounge 4 are an Edinburgh-based mash-up band who pride themselves on delivering classics in a fun and imaginative way. With a 5-string banjo, acoustic guitar, double bass, stripped down drum kit and four vocalists, Banjo Lounge Four will get the party started with their Bluegrass-funk style.

The Mersey Beatles  

Like the original Fab Four, The Mersey Beatles were all born in Liverpool. Since 1999 they have been recreating the sights and sounds of the Beatles with a very authentic and distinctly Liverpool flavoured tribute.
