Belfast is getting its first ever dedicated electronic music festival and conference this year, taking place on 4th June at the iconic T13 Titanic Docks.
The first wave includes RØDHÅD, Mano Le Tough, Gerd Janson, Optimo, Phil Kieran, plus the UK debut of Bicep's live show, complete with visuals from revered AV artists Guerrilla Shout.
As well as the music, there's to be a selection of panels from industry movers and shakers, a pop-up record fair and a street food market, to help ravers push through from afternoon to the early morning.
According to organisers: 'AVA is all about celebrating and educating talent coming from the once-troubled territory that is Belfast.' Sounds good to us!
