That’s a big BIG lineup drawn from across the spectrum of the bleeding edge of dance and electronic music with some live acts in rap, soul, R&B and punk (Enola Gay) for good measure

Crews and collectives like Twitch, EVE and Plain Sailing are also represented, and a conference element will also be announced.

AVA also announced a London event at Printworks on March 18th last week featuring Carl Cox, Irvine Welsh, a KiNK masterclass & much more.

“There is something very special about bringing together many minds, energies and artists in a City like Belfast. It’s an explosion of joy, an atmosphere wrapped up in yeo’s and arms punching the air from the moment we open the doors. Our City, our people, is as much a part of the lineup, as each artist we put on the bill, and we can’t wait to bring it back all together again.”

Sarah McBriar – Founder, AVA Festival
