What: ‘Hit The North’ Street Art Festival
When: 20th – 30th April 2023
Where: Belfast, Northern Ireland
About: Seedhead Arts, with support from Hennessy NI, is getting ready to make a ‘splash’ as they reveal the date of Ireland’s biggest street art festival which will run from 20th – 30th April in Belfast.
To celebrate its 10th birthday, the ‘Hit The North’ (HTN) Street Art Festival will welcome its most impressive roster of artists yet with the internationally renowned Studio Giftig, winner of Street Art Cities ‘Best Mural of 2022’, confirmed as one of the headliners. Over 60 artists from across the UK, Ireland and Europe will take part with the full line-up and events programme due to be revealed over the coming weeks.
The 10-day celebration will culminate in a ‘paint jam’ on Kent Street, Belfast on Sunday 30th April where spectators can soak up the party atmosphere and enjoy entertainment, food trucks and refreshments as they watch murals come to life.
HTN was initially established a decade ago as part of rejuvenation efforts in the North Street area of Belfast. The festival’s influence and impact has grown significantly since then and it is credited for nurturing and developing Northern Ireland’s street art industry locally. In the last ten years, the festival has welcomed over 200 artists from all over the world, helping bring NI’s rich cultural heritage for mural art into the 21st century.
