What we're looking for

We can offer opening and main support slots to touring acts and also headline slots to bands with an audience of 100+ in our city. We can also offer use of the venue for hired shows for bands and promoters to self promote their own events.

About us

The Lemon Tree was formed in 1992 as the base venue for Aberdeen’s Alternative Festival. The two performance spaces bring cutting edge music, theatre, comedy and dance to the city, and provide unforgettable, intimate opportunities to see an exciting array of small-scale performing arts in the North-east. We are open to all types of genres and bands to play our space and have a licence to be open 7 days a week.

How to get a gig

To be considered for a show, please email our music programmer Steven Milne: with a short one-paragraph bio, links to websites/pages, links to music and if possible a clip of a live show or any preferred video content.
