Starting the AVA weekender on Friday, there’s a blend of live acts and DJs ready to kick off proceedings with major energy. International superstars and homegrown legends BICEP will play their largest homecoming set & live show to date in their home city of Belfast. With a UK chart topping album under their belts, a Brit nomination, and a host of club hits soundtracking dancefloors around the world, BICEP have grown to be one the cities most celebrated exports and will return with an outstanding audio visual show especially curated for their city. More special live shows on the Friday come from Ross From Friends, PROSPA, and 999999999, blending their trademark electronica with impressive AV shows to take viewers on a journey through their sets.

Joining the Friday bill will be Dublin’s Gemmy Dunleavy, who has deservedly shot to fame with her catchy vocal and garage blends, along with Bklava, father / daughter duo Floorplan, Special Request, Logic1000, KESSLER, Sally C and plenty more. The Irish contingent will be represented with a serious selection of local acts, with ELLLL, Carlton Doom, Plain Sailing, DART and plenty more repping for the North and South.

AVA SATURDAY LINE UP 

Saturday sees another huge set of talent on board in the form of Mura Masa, an artist whose playful productions have won his several Grammy awards, and seen him collaborate with the likes of A$AP Rocky, Stormzy, Pink Pantheress and more. One of Ireland’s most famed RnB / rap crossover names, BIIG PIIG, will also perform live with her unique blend of English / Spanish word tracks. Other live acts include Soichi Terada who will deliver a high-energy set packed with feel-good vibes, plus get set for powerful techno and left-leaning sounds from Overmono and Giant Swan, and a closing set from the legendary electronic experimentalist Jon Hopkins. Perfect for the energetic Belfast crowd – of course there’ll be plenty of techno with I HATE MODELS, VTSS, Skin On Skin, plus high BPM jungle rave and breaks from Sherelle, Calibre, and more.

As always, local legends are plenty on Saturday’s bill with Mark Blair, Timmy Stewart, Jordan Nocturne, Holly Lester, Marion Hawkes, TWITCH, Inside Moves and plenty more where that came from.
