The programme for this year’s Sound of Belfast has been announced, with the events running from November 6-14 around the city, culminating in the presentation of this year’s Oh Yeah Legend Award to The Divine Comedy at the NI Music Prize event at the Mandela Hall on November 14.
The festivities include many exhibitions from local artists & filmmakers, as well as conferences and masterclasses at the Oh Yeah Centre. These include the Belfast Urban Affinity 2015, aimed at hard-to-reach youths, and the Breaking Into Music Youth Conference, featuring the likes of Phil Taggart, who quickly progressed from BBC Radio Ulster to Radio 1 in recent years.
Obviously, there’ll be a fine selection of performances from the finest talent around, like punk icons Stiff Little Fingers at the Ulster Hall, Bronagh Gallagher, VerseChorusVerse & David Lyttle, Jealous of the Birds, Rory Nellis, Matua Trap, and the Oh Yeah Centre’s Scratch My Progress young artist development programme’s official launch, featuring Sister Ghost & Treehome, as well as many more.
