Around the Town Music Festival

August 2 @ 7:30 pm - August 10 @ 4:00 pm

Around the Town is a first of its kind festival for Carrickfergus organised by a collective of local musicians and event planners. We have 22 events spanning 9 days with a broad range of music and events to suit everyones tastes – launching with the Grampian Orchestra and finishing with Anna’s Number!

The festival originated via Positive Carrickfergus and our monthly conversations for musicians and creatives as they worked together on an arts strategy and program of events for Carrickfergus Town Hall.

It became apparent quite quickly that a festival was on everyone’s minds and with the skill, experience and momentum in the room, it felt like a wave that we needed to ride while it was with us.  Here we are 6 months later with a crammed program of local music in venues across the town, each event hosted by a local musician or performer showcasing the life and passions of musicians Around the Town. 

The festival is supported by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Department for Communities and National Lottery Community fund.

Tickets are various prices and some events are fee – all tickets can be purchased via the link below
