EMERGE MUSIC FESTIVAL, one of Ireland’s biggest music festivals is back in 2023 at Boucher Road Playing Fields, on the August Bank Holiday weekend, following a sell-out inaugural year.

2023 headliners Bicep [Live], Carl Cox, Camelphat and Charlotte de Witte are joined by an all-star lineup of international & local acts including Skin On Skin, Alan Fitzpatrick, Rebuke, Ewan Mcvicar, Denis Sulta, Floorplan, Mella Dee, Mark Blair, Fionn Curran and Irish superstar blk. who will be making his Emerge stage debut this year. 

A full line-up across 4 stages and two days will be announced in the coming months. A strong focus on sound, AV and lighting in 2022 will be built upon to create a genuinely world class audience experience. Homegrown talent will be at the core of a line-up encompassing more than 50 acts, as they appear alongside the best breaking acts from the burgeoning international electronic music scene. 

Festival Director Alan Simms of Shine commented: “This years line-up is the culmination of almost 30 years work at both club level, and building on our other outdoor events in the city. Bicep played some of their first live shows at our events, so seeing them headline a show of this size in Belfast, as their career continues to explode Internationally, is a genuine pleasure for me. Likewise, I’ve been working with Carl Cox for over 25 years, and he’s a perfect addition to this event. Emerge Music Festival’s opening year was everything I had hoped for, and I look forward to building on that success for our second year with more acts, even bigger production and a genuinely first class customer experience.”
