Taking place from October 17-27 the annual multi-disciplinary arts festival will take place across various venues and feature countless continent-spanning events and showcases in music, arts, dance, theatre, film, talks and more.

Acts set to play the festival include New York indie-folk/roots band Hem, Copenhagen classically-infused indie rock three-piece Efterklang (above) and cult blues American guitarist Eric Bibb and his band.

Other highlights of the festival include a performance by world-renown Spanish tenor José Carreras, a staging on Samuel Beckett’s iconic absurdist play Waiting For Godot and a world-class giant land-art portrait transforming five acres of land in the Titanic Quarter.
