AVA Festival and Conference Returns for 2018

AVA (Audio Visual Arts) Festival and Conference has rapidly become an unmissable highlight in the UK & European festival calendar, taking pride of place as a cultural pioneer in its home country of Northern Ireland and now beyond. Following on from last year’s first full AVA Weekender, the festival gears up for it’s biggest outing yet. Marking it’s fourth edition, AVA 2018 starts on Friday June 1st 2018 with Ireland’s leading electronic music conference, followed by an unmissable two day festival in their new dystopian warehouse home.

True to form, cutting edge international heavyweights join grassroots talent in a former B&Q warehouse, now known at S13 Warehouse, in the heart of the city. For 2018, three stages become four, with a new addition making its debut. Plus, Boiler Room return to take their legendary AVA stage partnership to the next level, by upping the broadcast to a two-day live stream. AVA’s Boiler Room stage is a true festival highlight and legendary annual event in the dance music world, from Space Dimension Controller’s Ayla drop to monumental sets from each and every selector last year. Belfast’s inimitable crowd and fun loving spirit has long captivated global audiences, both at AVA Festival and those further afield, desperate to chime in on the action.

With weekend tickets available now from just £50, plus a deposit scheme starting at just £25, don’t sleep on your chance to join one of the brightest, forward-thinking underground festivals that the UK has to offer. For those who want to piece in on the action, it’s a no brainer.

The independent S13 Warehouse is another pioneering regeneration project from the Square Pit team, the same guys behind AVA’s former home T13 Belfast. This transformed site is located at South Belfast’s former B&Q Warehouse and represents the latest exciting development of Square Pit’s ‘Hybrid Venue’ concept as well as a totally unique platform for the next phase of the AVA Festival experience.

As well as all of this, there’s much more in store for AVA 2018. Keep your eyes peeled for further details.


1st to 2nd June 2018 || S13 Warehouse, Belfast
