Open House Festival: back to midsummer in 2013
Open House Festival team in Belfast for the news that following its 'festival lineup all year long' format in 2012, the Open House Festival will be back to a five-day midsummer format next year, when the dates will be 19-23 June. Kieran and the team announce:
Despite a very tough year for Open House Festival and for everyone in Belfast associated with the arts, we have bounced back with an exciting and innovative programme of music for June 2013. We can't announce details just yet but if you love music, and in particular folk, Americana, Irish traditional, or bluegrass, from North America or North Down, then you'll not be disappointed. Keep an eye on our website for details.
Rosa Solinas, head of music at the Arts Council of Northern Ireland (the festival's main funder) adds:
This unique festival, now in its fifteenth year, continues to delight audiences in Belfast. It showcases both established and unknown talent in folk, bluegrass, and Irish traditional music, adding to the rich cultural tapestry of this city.
