AVA Festival & Conference announce 2017 lineup with Jeff Mills, Marcel Dettmann, Bicep and more

The line up for the third annual AVA Festival, Ireland’s marquee dance music event, has been announced.

Taking place once again at Belfast’s T13, this year’s spectacular will for the first time span two days – on the 2nd and 3rd of June – which is both a reflection of its rapidly growing popularity, and the organisers’ boundless ambition.

As in previous years, the roster will be dominated by house and techno, with established international acts and a generous helping of Irish talent. Techno royalty Jeff Mills will be performing his Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind show in collaboration with Guillaume Marmin, and sets from Marcel Dettmann, Ben UFO, Midland, Job Jobse, local heroes Bicep, and many more will also feature.

Included too, will be talks and workshops with industry figures that are now woven into the fabric of the event, and have in the past featured Juan Atkins, Dave Haslam and Jurassic 5’s DJ Nu-Mark among others.
