Standing firmly at the front of the music and digital arts space in Belfast for half a decade, today AVA Festival and Conference announces yet another progressive line up to take note of with Motor City Drum Ensemble, Ben UFO, The Black Madonna, Avalon Emerson, Len Faki, Call Super and Daniel Avery and all heading to Belfast.

Taking place over Friday 31st May - Saturday 1st June, AVA has been committed to supporting the Irish arts since its inception and has since become an incubator for local talent across the North and the South of the country, fostering local scenes and providing emerging DJ’s a platform.

Split between a free daytime conference at The MAC (FRI 31st May), and all-out-party at the epic ex B&Q warehouse on Boucher Road (FRI + SAT 1st June), 2019's edition will be the biggest yet. Celebrating, amplifying and developing the strong current of electronic music and AV throughout Belfast and beyond for the past 5 years - AVA welcomes back a whole host of homegrown heroes and new editions for 2019.

Following the same vein of the London Printworks conference earlier this month, AVA Belfast will offer an insight into the music and arts industry from artists, agents, labels and innovators over two days of programming. AVA invites Resident Advisor back for another year, this time they will sit down with Kentucky’s finest export, The Black Madonna as she will partake in an edition of their live Exchange series. She will examine the development of her music and will give an insight to her career as a touring DJ.

Elsewhere, Red Bull Music head back to AVA, this time with essential promoters come DJs Horse Meat Disco. Running club nights since 2003 starting home in Vauxhall, Horse Meat Disco have since been the backbone to LGBTQ+ clubbing in London and beyond. Now DJing all over the globe, they’ll sit down with Red Bull Music to discuss the shift in night time culture across the capital and the changes they have faced since they started at the infamous pub The Eagle.

Also heading to AVA is Help Musicians Northern Ireland, as lead charitable partner, who will be hosting panels focussed around musicians welfare, funding and health. They will be on hand to offer to one on one support on their long term holistic services. PRS for Music will also advising on royalties and tips for licensing usage at the conference.

Tickets for the Festival are on final release already so act fast. The AVA Conference on Friday 31st May is 100% FREE to attend for all those that register, so there’s no excuse to miss this.

Just 10 minutes by car from Belfast City Airport (LDN > BEL approx 1hr30), the venue location is ideal for overseas visitors. With regular bus services running directly to S13 Belfast from the city centre, it’s easily accessible for local and regional visitors, too. With deposit scheme tickets starting at just £25, fourth release tickets £75 and flights from £32 via skyscanner.net, from London the whole price of AVA can work out cheaper than a UK day festival for those that act fast - there's a whole host of hotels, apartments and Airbnb options to suit any group size and budgets.
