The programme for Ireland’s biggest Community Festival and Summer school was launched at Conway Mill recently.

The Féile fun kicks off from 30 July - 9 August with hundreds of events taking place across West Belfast and the Gaeltacht Quarter.

Headliners at the Big Top in Falls Park this year include the mighty UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Wolfe Tones, The Big Fight Night in the Marquee, Féile Dance Night with legendary promoters Goodgreef, Frankie Boyle, Country goes West (featuring Hugo Duncan) and synth-pop legends The Human League.

Other highlights include the return of the colourful Carnival Parade, this year’s theme is Beasts and Feasts, which takes place on Sunday 2 August and wends its way up the Falls Road to Falls Park, where it becomes Party in the Park.

This year’s headliners at Party in the Park are Louis Walsh’s latest boy band protégés, Hometown who join a host of other music acts plus bouncy castles, assault courses, street theatre, a climbing tower, archery, falconry and much more family fun besides.

The hotly anticipated Scribes at the Rock event this year features a wealth of literary talent including internationally best-selling author Marian Keyes.

A packed programme also includes a wealth of other talks, tours, discussions, debates, theatre and family events which nestle alongside big headlining music and comedy acts to make Féile 2015 the biggest and most inclusive in its 27 years.

Féile’s extensive programme of events is available on www.feilebelfast.com. Tickets can also be purchased from the Féile website, Ticketmaster.ie, at Belfast Welcome Centre or any Ticketmaster Outlet.
