The dust has settled from year two of AVA Festival. The attendance almost doubled as Rodhad, Mano Le Tough, Bicep, Gerd Janson, Sunil Sharpe and many more showcased international quality fused with the local, pure talent of Phil Kieran, Hammer and more.
For the first time AVA will be spread across two days, Friday 2nd June and Saturday 3rd June, compromising AVA Pro, AVA Conference and AVA Festival. The goal, as ever, is to celebrate, promote and develop the strong community of electronic music creatives and digital visual arts from Northern Ireland, as well as internationally. The event will once more be held in T13 Belfast.
The founder of AVA Festival, Sarah McBriar, spoke to us today announcing her euphoria that the festival is back and bigger than ever.
“We are thrilled to announce the return of AVA and this time as a 2-dayer. The festival will return to Belfast’s T13 for the third year running. This year we will be coming back with an even bigger line up of local and international talent, exciting new and re-established partnerships and a conference that will really leave its mark. The success of 2016 really solidified our plans to grow the event to two days. We can’t wait.”
As for the line up, nothing has been confirmed just yet, but we cannot wait to see what the AVA crew pull out of the bag next. Pre-sale tickets will become available in November at a discounted rate and you can sign up via the AVA website.
