Belfast’s AVA (Audio, Visual, Arts) Festival is set to return once again in 2018, but in a brand new location. It seems that the T13 shipping yard is no more.
AVA Festival and Conference has rapidly become an unmissable highlight in the UK & European festival calendar, taking pride of place as a cultural pioneer in its home country of Northern Ireland and now beyond.
Following on from last year’s first full AVA Weekender, the festival gears up for it’s biggest outing yet. Marking it’s fourth edition, AVA 2018 starts on Friday June 1st 2018 with Ireland’s leading electronic music conference, followed by an unmissable two day festival in their new dystopian warehouse home. True to form, cutting edge international heavyweights join grassroots talent in a former B&Q warehouse, now known at S13 Warehouse, in the heart of the city. For 2018, three stages become four, with a new addition making its debut.
Plus, Boiler Room return to take their legendary AVA stage partnership to the next level, by upping the broadcast to a two-day live stream. AVA’s Boiler Room stage is a true festival highlight and legendary annual event in the dance music world, from Space Dimension Controller’s Ayla drop to monumental sets from each and every selector last year. Belfast’s inimitable crowd and fun loving spirit has long captivated global audiences, both at AVA Festival and those further afield, desperate to chime in on the action.
