Belfast’s Audio Visual Arts Festival and Conference (AVA) returns in 2018 at former B&Q warehouse, S13. Following last year’s first full AVA Weekender, Friday June 1st will kick off the fourth edition with Ireland’s leading electronic music conference, followed by an unmissable two-day festival in their dystopian warehouse home on Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd.
Expect cutting-edge international heavyweights coupled with grassroots talent in the heart of the city. New for 2018, three stages become four while Boiler Room return to partner the AVA stage and up their broadcasting to a two-day live stream.
The new warebouse venue, S13 Belfast, is a multipurpose creative space, curated by Square Pit, the team behind AVA’s former home T13 Belfast. Located at the heart of Belfast, S13 will undergo an immense transformation and sits just a 10 minutes by car from Belfast City Airport while regular bus services runn direct from the city centre.
Weekend tickets to AVA 2018 are available now from just £50, there is also a deposit scheme starting at just £25.
