We’re back with another incredible line-up featuring some of the most varied, exciting, and interesting music around.
We’re paying homage to jazz legend Ornette Coleman, redefining piano trios with Vein Trio, bringing Latin rhythms to the Belfast Barge, adding a touch of NYC to synth-soaked free jazz with OKO and Tim Berne, going classic with Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock, and finishing with two of the most exciting bands in on these islands; Dinosaur and Alarmist. This year’s festival will also feature performances from brand new ensembles assembled by our artist-in-residence David Lyttle.
We’re also delighted to be working with the Belfast Film Festival for the first time, screening some amazing films during the festival in their very own BeanBag Cinema.
If you have been before, you’ll know what to expect: amazing, surprising, life-changing music. If you haven’t, we hope you’ll come along and experience Belfast’s only jazz festival in all its bijou glory!
