If you haven’t been AVA festival…you haven’t lived! Belfast’s nightlife scene is already very high ranking, but AVA is a festival that encompasses the spirit and heart of Northern Ireland and its culture. Back for another edition at SS13 Warehouse, it doesn’t hold any stops in terms of who will be headlining it’s many stages, it’s infamous Boiler Room stage and electronic music inspired conferences.
In it’s fourth year we expect to see legend Robert Hood and daughter’s duo Floorplan, music auteur KINK, female electro powerhouse Helena Hauff and Berghain resident DVS1. Accompanied by many new artists and devoted regular’s as: Bicep, Rodhad, Denis Sulta, Hunee and OR:LA.
The colourful and joyful exuberance of the Boiler Room performances are one of the many (if not the main) highlight of the festival. This year’s Boiler room will see such musical maestro’s as Irish born and bred Mano Le Tough, accompanied by the likes of Job Jobse, Midland and Sunil Sharpe.
This year’s AVA’s conference see’s the one and only house music icon Larry Heard (a.k.a Mr Fingers) be the main speaker as he talks about his life and career and legacy. Not one to miss!
AVA will be held on the weekend of the 1-2 June.
