AVA Festival has revealed the next slew of acts set to take to Belfast this summer from Friday, June 2 to Saturday, June 3.

Taking place outside the city’s iconic Titanic Slipway museum, AVA Festival last month confirmed a number of big names for this year’s event including headline sets from Central Cee and Slowthai.

Nine new acts have now been added to the existing line-up, including a third headline slot from Peggy Gou, and co-headliners Blawan, Ben UFO, as well as Ireland’s own Or:la B2B Sally C.

“Debuts, B2B’s and special one-off Live Shows. We are proud to reveal 9 new acts added to the AVA Belfast 2023 Lineup,” announced AVA on Instagram over the weekend.

Funk Tribu, Spray, Optmst, Moregain and Jenna Daley have also been added to the line-up for this year’s event, and will go up alongside other acts including Eliza Rose, Overmono, and DJ Boring.

With an aim to highlight Irish talent, a number of previously announced Ireland-hailing artists including Kojaque and Kettama will also be taking to the stage.

“At AVA, we are committed to evolving as both a festival and a cultural movement, with a mantra to never stand still. 2023 marks a moment where AVA is evolving as music and cultural tastes change,” said AVA’s Festival Director, Sarah McBriar.

“It moves with the moment whilst staying true to its origins in electronic music. It’s where multiple artforms converge to create memorable moments for music fans and electronic arts enthusiasts.”
