AVA add 4 new acts and announce visual artists for 2022 programme

Words: Dylan Murphy

The Belfast-based festival has revealed Partiboi69, Sally C, Skin On Skin and duo Piri & Tommy are joining the lineup alongside a host of exciting visual artists.

Having announced their most exciting and musically-diverse lineup to date, AVA Festival has now upped the ante with another wave of artists. Sally C joins the billing after a no-holds-barred b2b DJ set with Cromby in 2021, Partiboi69 brings his interactive show to Belfast, while Skin On Skin & fast emerging duo Piri & Tommy also head to the North’s capital as part of the latest round of acts revealed for the festival.

Joining the DJs and live acts at the new home of Titanic Slipways is a host of the UK and Ireland’s most exciting visual artists. Black Box Echo (Bicep), Gray for Days (Ross From Friends),
Dan Tombs (Jon Hopkins), Algorithm, Visual Spectrum, Wee Nuls and more all join the lineup.

Speaking on the festival, audio visual artist Black Box Echo says, “Everywhere I go in the world with Bicep there always seems to be a little pocket of Belfast natives in the crowd bringing that unique energy, so Bicep shows in Belfast are always extra special. The atmosphere is so electric that we always feel hyped to pull out all the stops on these occasions. Performing this show outdoors in Belfast for the first time will be especially exciting”.
