AVA Festival: 5 highlights from Belfast’s global electronic festival

These visual artists will work with the AVA production team, plus specific artists on the lineup to create bespoke visual shows just for the festival.

“Everywhere I go in the world with Bicep there always seems to be a little pocket of Belfast natives in the crowd bringing that unique energy, so Bicep shows in Belfast are always extra special. The atmosphere is so electric that we always feel hyped to pull out all the stops on these occasions. Performing this show outdoors in Belfast for the first time will be especially exciting.”
