They will join a stellar line-up of talent for the four-day event, which includes Glasvegas, Tracyanne & Danny, The Magic Numbers and Mull Historical Society.
A highlight of True North, which runs from September 20-23, will be a special tribute concert to the music of David Bowie, with Camille O’Sullivan and some of the country’s finest musicians.
Jane Spiers, chief executive of Aberdeen Performing Arts, said: “The juxtaposition of the sheer sonic force of Mogwai in the elegant setting of His Majesty’s Theatre will be a unique opportunity and promises to be a must-see for fans.
“It’s a huge coup for True North to secure this fantastic band to headline our fourth festival.”
