EXTINCTION REBELLION SCOTLAND ARE HAVING A BIG OL’ PARTY, AND YOU’RE ALL INVITED.

The year is 2019. The oceans are clogged with single use plastics, the Arctic is on fire, and the Scottish summer is hotter than ever. The kids are not alright- they’ve all got climate anxiety and they’re fearing for the future. So what can we do?

ACT NOW, HOLLER UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS, HOST CITIZENS’ ASSEMBLIES AND DANCE IN THE WRECKAGE UNTIL THE POWERS THAT BE TAKE NOTICE.

With the support of Extinction Rebellion UK, we’re hosting a free, inclusive, family friendly festival for one day only in the oil & gas capital of Europe. With your help, we’ll be taking over the Aberdeen Arts Centre and the Anatomy Rooms on the 1st of September for a day of education, activism, arts and FUN.

Featuring: music from Scottish hip hop heroes Johnny Cypher and Jackill, synth pop enigma Erskine Lynas and queer icon Scarlett Randle; poetry from local legend Jo Gilbert and critical darling Imogen Stirling; plus workshops, speakers, food & drinks, visual arts and many more special guests TBA.

We encourage everyone to use public transport as far as possible, but there will be limited parking available nearby. Information on bus routes etc to follow.
