Festival Description

The August Féile is the largest community-led festival in Europe that takes place each year with events of the highest standards of quality entertainment. August Féile has had similar acts to three major UK festivals—Glastonbury, the Cambridge Folk Festival and the London Fleadh. These are all recognized internationally for the quality and breath of their acts.

August Féile was essentially set up to highlight the creative and dynamic community that resides in West Belfast and to promote the community on the world stage; each year world-renowned acts gathere in West Belfast. However an important part of our ethos is to promote local talent and the organizers actively ensure that some of the acts include both established and up-and-coming local/national artists. August Féile incorporates ten days and nights of music and concerts, exhibitions, discussions and debates, children’s events, literary events, dramas, Féile FM radio station, community events, carnival parade, an International Food Fayre, Sports, Tours and Walks.
