Welcome to the Belfast International Arts Festival.

Our aim is a simple one; to create a genuinely civic event of contemporary arts and ideas of international appeal and stature.

The festival covers theatre, dance, classical and roots music, visual, film and digital arts and literature accompanied by outreach and educational events.
