As announced on BBC Radio Ulster’s ‘Across The Line’, Spectrum Music Festival returns for its fifth consecutive year. This year, the festival’s home is right in the heart of Belfast’s Botanic Avenue, at the ‘The Belfast Empire‘ on Thursday, 26 October 2017.
Known for their relentless live energy, Belfast based alternative rock quartet ‘A Plastic Rose’ return as headliners, with their first show in over 2 years. The critically acclaimed band have since featured on BBC Radio 1‘s ‘Maida Vale’ live session for Huw Stephens (Radio 1/NME) who has labelled their sound as “mesmerizing”.
Lauded by critics and described as “one of the most uplifting prospects” (Stuart Bailie, BBC Radio 1), Castlerock four-piece ‘brand new friend‘ join as headline support. Fronted by songwriter Naomi Hamilton and bursting with honesty and raw passion, the hotly tipped ‘Jealous of the Birds‘ also join 2017’s line-up.
Grounded and rooted in blues, garage and alternative rock, Derry five-piece ‘Scenery‘ join the rhythmic riff-oriented Belfast based rock band ‘Search Party‘. Combining vast amounts of energy and passion, punk-pop trio ‘Hello Casanova‘ complete this year’s line-up.
Limited early bird tickets (£10) are available at Ticketmaster Ireland, and The Belfast Empire. Tickets will also be available at the door (£12) on Thursday, 26 October from 6:30pm. Set times will be available closer to the time of the event.
