The first acts for Belsonic 2016 were announced to a packed house in Katy’s Bar in The Limelight complex on Thursday night.
But the big game changer was a new venue – the grounds of Titanic Belfast instead of Custom House Square.
The festival will take place from June 9-29 and the line up will include…
Tiesto + Oliver Heldens
Thursday June 9
Saturday June 11
Bring Me The Horizon
Friday June 17
Thursday June 23
Saturday June 25
David Guetta + Robin Schulz + Jonas Blue
Sunday June 26
Tuesday June 28
Stereophonics + The Vaccines
Wednesday June 29
Tickets for all the shows (priced £29.50 + booking fee) go on sale on Friday March 4 at belsonic.com
In the lead up to the announcement Belsonic had been running a competition via their Facebook page to win a pair of tickets to one of the shows.
All you had to do was correctly guess one of the acts who’d be playing in advance of Thursday’s big reveal.
Guesses included Jake Bugg, Kaiser Chiefs, Mumford & Sons, Paulo Nutini, The 1975, Bruce Springsteen and Beyonce (though we’re pretty sure the last two were just wishful thinking)
Someone even went to the bother of re-designing the Belsonic flyer…
Michael McWilliams gets 0 out of 6 for accuracy but full marks for effort.
