Hello and welcome to Belfast’s only jazz festival, Brilliant Corners! This is number eight.
This edition will see 10 days of the very best local, national and international talent fill the city with music. There will be familiar names and brand-new stars. Expect sounds from Berlin, New Orleans, mid-Ulster and outer space.
We’ve grown this year with an extra couple of concerts, post-gig jam sessions at The Sunflower, and the films are back too! Our ridiculously good value full-festival-ticket is back as well, giving access to 12 ticketed gigs for just £50 – or you can pay per concert. We just want you to hear as much as you can, go to things you may not normally go to, and say things like “I had no idea I would enjoy that so much!”.
The programme is fit for bursting with great stuff and we can’t wait for you to enjoy it.
If you have been before, you’ll know what to expect; amazing, surprising, life-changing music. If you haven’t, we hope you’ll come along and experience Belfast’s only jazz festival in all it’s bijou glory!
