Words: Dylan Murphy

AVA Festival returns to Belfast this year in its new home of the Titanic slipways.

A can’t-miss event in the Northern-Irish calendar every year, AVA Festival has become the North’s most exciting festival in recent years.

Today, they’ve revealed the full lineup for the 2022 edition of the festival that takes place on June 3 & 4. For the first time, the festival will take place at its new home of the Titanic Slipways following a number of years at Boucher Road. Following the success of last year’s expanded sound palette at the Grass’ Stages, the festival has continued to open its doors to acts from genres not limited to electronic music. Likewise, they are maintaining their commitment to supporting homegrown talent from both sides of the border across a number of stages.

Having already announced a homecoming show for Belfast duo BICEP, 3 time GRAMMY-nominated producer Mura Masa joins the lineup alongside Jon Hopkins, Biig Piig and a host of other acts.

Speaking on the announcement, Emmett Costello, Head of Programming at AVA Festival said, “Excited to announce our festival lineup for 2022 which includes bringing 13 Belfast debuts to our new home at the Titanic Slipways. We’re proud to be continuing to support Irish talent including Bicep, Biig Piig, Calibre, Gemma Dunleavy, Kessler, Enola Gay, Mark Blair, Holly Lester & ELLLL, and diversifying our lineup with international artists across genres like Jon Hopkins, Mura Masa, Ross From Friends, LSDXOXO, Sherelle, TSHA, Soichi Terada + more.”

Founder of the festival, Sarah McBriar said, “There is something very special about bringing together many minds, energies and artists in a City like Belfast. It’s an explosion of joy, an atmosphere wrapped up in yeo’s and arms punching the air from the moment we open the doors. Our City, our people, is as much a part of the lineup, as each artist we put on the bill, and we can’t wait to bring it back all together again.”
