With performances from no less than 12 of Belfast's most exciting new acts, the Belfast Music Week Showcase will be an unmissable highlight of Belfast Music Week at the Limelight Complex on November 14.
Belfast Music Week is a celebration of our local bands and venues, as well as the wider music industry and community, and runs from November 11 – 17. It features live music performances, workshops, seminars and networking events and includes over 250 events in 70 venues across the city. It's a chance to see legends and breaking talent, and to appreciate the ongoing success stories and a musical city that continues to make us proud.
The line-up for the Belfast Music Week Showcase (see below) has been hand-picked by a panel of media and music industry figures from Northern Ireland and beyond, and the concert will be attended by a host of influential industry visitors – an incredible opportunity to experience the best talent that Belfast has to offer in one night, and under one roof.
