Featuring artists and performers from across the globe, enjoy 103 events over 19 days.

This year’s programme is largely grouped around three main themes: Nineteen Sixteen (the legacy of 1916 and the Great War Years), Bending the Bard (a sideways look at the enduring appeal of Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death) and World in Motion (exploring the human face of the ongoing migration crisis).

Highlights include the Northern Ireland premiere of the flamboyant and vocally gifted, Obie Award-winning New York performer Taylor Mac, who brings a series of special, participative concerts to the festival.
