Inspirational & transformative experiences from world class artists, thinkers & leaders

Welcome to 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 2020 festival will take place from Thursday 15 October – Saturday 31 October covering theatre, dance, classical and roots music, visual, film and digital arts and literature accompanied by outreach and educational events.
