Founder and director Karen Knowles said: “Bon Accord and the [EIF] are both Scottish institutions with rich history, and now both showcase a contemporary and innovative Scotland. We only re-launched Bon Accord three years ago, so to be aligned with world’s greatest arts festival is a real privilege.”
