Shine & Belsonic have combined forces to bring the debut edition of Emerge Festival taking place this August Bank Holiday in Belfast. The lineup is packed with heavy hitters including; Eric Prydz, Disclosure, Peggy Gou, Kettama, Mall Grab & more.
EMERGE Music Festival is a brand new annual two day multi stage outdoor event brought to you by the teams behind long running Belfast club brand Shine & Belsonic Festival, taking place for the first time this August Bank Holiday in Belfast.
Emerge will be the largest event of its type in Ireland, with capacity for 20,000 guests each day, combining world class international acts with the wealth of amazing new talent continually emerging out of the Irish dance music scene. In it’s first year over 40 acts will appear across three stages, over the two days. Bespoke Sound & Lighting / AV installations will feature across all stages, with an emphasis on a world class audience experience.
Headliners Eric Prydz, Disclosure, Peggy Gou & Patrick Topping are regularly top billed at music festivals across the globe, and return to Belfast alongside a huge lineup of globally recognised electronic acts, including Kettama, Mall Grab, Micahel Bibi, DJ Seinfeld, Dusky, Special Request, FJAAK, Rebekah and many, many others.
Co-Promoter and Director Alan Simms commented:
“The electronic music scene is one that has grown steadily in Belfast over the 30-odd years that I’ve been promoting in the city with my Shine brand, and it’s grown exponentially over the last few years. Belfast is one of the most fertile and dynamic scenes of its kind in the UK or Ireland. We’ve promoted many large scale outdoor electronic events in recent years but always wanted to do a huge multi stage event of this kind. Feedback from our audience suggested that a huge appetite exists for a unique production of this kind in Northern Ireland. We’re lucky to have some of the world’s biggest names in dance music on our inaugural lineup of EMERGE Music Festival, most of whom we’ve been working with since their very first club shows in the country.”
EMERGE Music Festival goes on general sale on Tuesday 29th March at 9am from Ticketmaster.ie, with day tickets, weekend tickets and weekend ticket deposit plans available.
