North Hop will shake things up in Aberdeen next year by quadrupling capacity for the popular craft beer festival.
The inaugural event, which took place at The Lemon Tree earlier this year, sold out within two weeks and organisers promised the festival would return to the Granite City bigger and better.
Now the craft beer festival has announced it will expand to the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre next year, with four times the capacity of the 2015 event.
A spokeswoman on behalf of North Hop said: "We are absolutely delighted to be bringing North Hop back to the city, and this time, it’s going to be bigger than ever.
"We have increased the number of exhibitors at the festival dramatically and also have a number of new businesses attending the festival, offering up a wide range of the finest Scottish produce in the country."
The celebration of Scottish food and drink will return with a new vibe, with the extra space offering vendors the chance to bring their outside catering vans and huts inside the venue, with the likes of The Bay Fish and Chips, Fresh Mex, Adelphi Kitchen, Poporopo, BrewDog and Thistly Cross Cider already confirmed to attend.
Visitors will be able to choose from even more food and drink vendors, with eight exhibitors confirmed to provide bar-style snacks and tasters to help soak up beers, ciders and cocktails from around ten to 15 stalls representing breweries, bars and distilleries.
A select number of early bird tickets for the event have already gone on sale for the April 30 to May 1 event, with the full line-up vendors and acts to be announced in November.
North Hop's spokeswoman added: "Next year the festival will take place over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend with a limited number of early bird tickets available now for the three sessions, however, we don’t think these will last very long.
"We’re really excited to introduce new attendees to the Aberdeen event and can’t wait to welcome everyone from last year's festival back to the event next year."
