From the cosy intimacy of traditonal music sessions at small city centre pubs to full-scale arena concerts, there's more than enough choice to keep you entertained. There's a fine selection of annual open-air concerts and music festivals too, but book early to avoid disappointment! 

Belfast and the surrounding area also has a rich music heritage so be sure to take the musical bus tour of the city to find out how it influenced acts such as Van Morrison, Snow Patrol, Ruby Murray and many more. 

See below for some of Belfast's top music experiences.
