Event description

Description

FOCAL 3.0

Focal is a festival created out of frustration. Seeing other festivals in Belfast City grow so rapidly we noticed that they shunned home grown artists and business, instead the would invest in global artists and be propped up by multinational corporations. We wanted to change this and therefore we created Focal Festival, with the tag line “Focus on Local”. We exclusively support Northern Irish arts, ranging from Musicians, to podcasters, to yoga, to independent film. In addition to this we also exclusively support Northern Irish craft industry, with locally produced food on sale and exclusively local craft breweries and distilleries behind the bar.
