Fresh from their sold-out return to Ward Park in Bangor, Snow Patrol are now set to play at the Duncairn Centre in Belfast for three-day music event Other Voices.

A host of other bands and artists will also be involved, including Choice Prize-nominated four-piece The Academic and Derry’s Roe.

Snow Patrol’s performance will mark 10 years since they played Other Voices in Dingle, Co Kerry.

Tickets will only be available through competitions.

Other Voices, which first came to Belfast in 2017, will be collaborating with the Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts and 174 Trust to bring this event back to the city, with the support and investment of Belfast City Council and the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

“We are thrilled to have such amazing line-up here,” Ray Giffin, from the Duncairn Centre, said.

“We’re more than confident that our work with all the folks at Other Voices will enhance our profile and north Belfast as a positive example of the power of music and arts to create positive change.”

Belfast Lord Mayor John Finucane added: “Music influences so much of our culture here in Belfast.

“As part of our draft Cultural Strategy, we’ve outlined our ambitions to secure UNESCO City of Music status by 2021, and attracting events like Other Voices is a fantastic way of celebrating music and our musical heritage.

“It’s great to have Other Voices back at the Duncairn Centre again this summer and I hope it will inspire creativity and influence other exciting cultural activities right across the city.”
