BELFAST GIGS

More than just a festival…

We organise concerts and events all year round in both Belfast & Bangor. We’re a not-for-profit, so any surplus income from these shows is re-invested into other Open House projects. Click here to learn more.

If you need to contact us about any of the shows please email Kieran at info@openhousefestival.com

Due to the current health crisis, the Open House office is now closed temporarily. If you have a ticket for a concert that is cancelled or rescheduled, we will contact you directly with details of rescheduled dates and refunds. This is a very difficult time for the events sector so we thank you for your understanding and support. If you need to contact us you could email me at info@openhousefestival.com. See you on the other side. 

Kieran Gilmore, Festival Director
