AVA Presents: Boxing Day + New Year’s Eve

To close out 2022 we’re launching our all-new club series at Banana Block, Belfast – starting with Boxing Day + New Year’s Eve!

Our clubbing concept @ Banana Block is simple:

✚ A ground-stacked central stage.
✚ The crowd surrounding the DJ booth.
✚ Brand new strobe lighting system, augmenting the venue’s distinct warehouse aesthetic.
✚ A four-point surround sound system..
✚ A focus on unique DJ sets and back-to-backs.
✚ Clubbing with community at its core.

Boxing Day comes in the form of three artists with top-tier releases on the Feel My Bicep imprint; Hammer, Cromby & Swoose in a B2B2B bonanza. Support comes from up-and-coming party-starter DJ Time of the Month.

Meanwhile New Year’s Eve sees three hometown heroes return to AVA to bring in 2023 in true Belfast fashion. We’re buzzing to dance right through the holiday season with this excellent selection of local legends.
