Emerge Music Festival 2022 Post Festival Highlights!


A sell-out crowd of 40,000 electronic music fans attended the inaugural EMERGE Music Festival at Belfast’s Boucher Playing Fields on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th August.  

Fans enjoyed sets from international superstars such as Eric Prydz, Patrick Topping, Disclosure, Peggy Gou and many others. Over 50 acts performed across 4 stages, including a huge contingent of local & upcoming artists.

Shine’s Alan Simms, Festival Director, commented: “It was an incredible weekend. We invested heavily in raising the standard for sound, lighting and visuals, and both the acts & attendees loved it. I’ve been promoting electronic music in Belfast for almost 30 years, and this feels like the culmination of that work – we have produced something genuinely different from what’s been done before in Ireland. We’re looking forward to growing this in 2023 and beyond.”
