Booking & Important Information

How do I book my tickets?

All festival events can be booked directly through the What’s On section of our website.

Tickets can be booked in person at Visit Belfast Welcome Centre, 9 Donegall Square North, Belfast and by phone on 028 9024 6609 at the following times:

Mon – Sat 9am – 7pm, Sun 11am – 4pm

Door sales – If the event is not sold out in advance, online sales will remain open until the starting point of the event.

When you book an event

You will receive an email confirming your booking. Just turn up at the venue 10 or 15 minutes before the event is due to begin and give your name to one of the festival team. You do not need to bring a print-out of the confirmation.

If you book for one of the larger events at Banana Block or C.S. Lewis Square you will receive an e-ticket which you can download to your phone to be scanned at the event. If you don’t have a smartphone don’t worry, we can check you in manually.


Festival tickets cannot be refunded other than in the case of event cancellation, in which case all refunds can only be issued from the point of purchase. 


As far as possible we are using venues that are fully accessible, but not all venues are wheelchair accessible, so please let us know at the point of purchase if you have any special requirements so we can ensure your comfort at the event.  We offer 1 complimentary ticket for customers that require a Personal Assistant to attend an event. To request a Personal Assistant ticket please email rachel@eastsidepartnership.com


All seating is un-allocated therefore operates on a first come, first served basis, and seats cannot be reserved other than in cases of special requirements.
