AVA Belfast returns across 4 days at the end of May, encompassing a free conference at The Mac, arts exhibition, installations and a new outdoor ticketed multi-stage festival site located at Boucher Road Fields. The remodelled site will be newly designed by the AVA team, offering a headline ready mainstage, whilst incorporating the raw, industrial intimate stage experiences with lighting and visual art and the iconic Belfast Boiler Room and Red Bull Stage. The Festival will showcase the very best that electronic music and Irish visual art has to offer and inviting pioneers of the scene to play alongside the freshest breakthrough talent to the legendary Irish crowd.

We are excited to welcome home-grown hero Max Cooper who will be commanding the stage for an electrifying opening live show, kicking off the 2020 event with a serious bang before two full days of electronic music.

Our Opening Show will take place at The MAC on Thursday 28th May.  Max will be joined by a a range of other local talent TBA.  The Opening Show is an open show and tickets are available to both those attending and not attending the festival.
