AVA (Audio Visual Arts) Belfast, is a one day-&-night grass roots festival and conference that celebrates, amplifies and develops the strong current of electronic music and digital visual arts that has emerged from Northern Ireland.
Up Productions Ltd have teamed with a host of locals including Matthew McBriar and Andy Ferguson (BICEP), Timmy Stewart (Extended Play), Oisin O’Brien (Guerilla Shout), Generator NI and many more to produce AVA.
The goal is to provide an opportunity for emerging and established artists, labels, designers, promoters and some very special guests, to share their knowledge through a free daytime conference (11.00-16.00) that progresses into the AVA evening showcase (16.00-Late), with headliners Bicep, Ejeca, Optimo, SDC and Phil Kieran paying homage to Northern Ireland’s unique energy and character.
Top partners such as Ableton, shall present their ‘Ableton Push Playground’, showcasing their new hardware and software with a specialised trainer, along with a number of other workshops and talks. AVA will also host a food market and record fair… with more to be announced. Keep up to date, by registering via www.avafestival.com/conference
