AVA Festival is a cutting-edge house and techno music festival in the Northern Ireland capital of Belfast.

After having to take a year off in 2020, AVA returns to the city in 2021 ready to pick up where it left off with another weekend in the company of the dance scene’s most innovative artists.

AVA Festival is built around five core pillars; forward thinking lineups, artist development, high production values, a commitment to visual arts and community, and AVA’s September 2021 edition will deliver on all five.

AVA Festival spans an opening concert, conference, four-stage festival and closing party, often in collaboration with brands such as Boiler Room and Red Bull, culminating in an event that attracts astute music fans from across the UK, as well as industry leaders and experts keen to share their knowledge and discuss the future of electronic music.

AVA Festival 2021 in May was postponed to September due to the coronavirus outbreak. Ticket Holders can transfer their tickets to AVA September 2021, or to AVA 2022 or get a refund. You can read the festival’s statement here
