Sound of Belfast 2015

Northern Ireland’s leading music event Sound of Belfast is in full swing.

Coordinated by our Artistic Development Partner Oh Yeah Centre, Sound of Belfast has proved itself a vital part of Northern Ireland’s music scene since 2014.

The festivities got off to a great start on Friday night, with Bronagh Gallgher’s incredible and intimate gig opening the festival. With an array of artists playing over nine days at countless venues across the city, the week is known for its sense of community spirit. On offer are industry workshops, performances and talks, showcasing the huge spectrum of Irish music, from new talent to veteran punks.Sound of Belfast 2015

The week long programme ends with the Northern Ireland Music Prize, with recently selected Emerging Artists Fund artist Ryan Vail up for nomination.

Stuart Bailie, CEO of Oh Yeah Music Centre said: It’s a joy to see Sound of Belfast returning. Last year we determined to fill November with exceptional, local music. This year, we’re eager to make things even better and so many people are helping us along the way. The introduction of a Youth Conference and a Music Cities day allows us to imagine a city that is energised by music and sends out encouraging noises to a new generation.
