goNORTH was launched in 2001 to provide a platform for artistes from the north of Scotland to showcase for music industry and media representatives on their own patch. Originally hosted across Aberdeen’s Belmont Street, we briefly relocated to Dundee, before settling in Scotland’s most northerly city, Inverness. Now covering a much wider remit including Screen & Broadcast, Designer Fashion and Publishing, goNORTH has become an international event firmly established as Scotland’s leading Creative Industries Festival.
ScreenHI and Go Events came together to form Creative Highland, responsible for the delivery of goNORTH to a professional industry audience. Every year we are looking to grow the festival by developing our international partnerships through the variety of workshops we deliver, increase the level of international speakers we invite and ensure attendance of the industry professionals you want to see. We are also keen to increase our presence throughout the year with news and information from the creative industries we represent. Most importantly goNORTH Festival is completely free to attend and an event we don't want anyone to miss!
