Harp Angel’s Looking on the Harp Side at Féile an Phobail

The Harp Angel has taken flight at Féile an Phobail (30 Jul – 9 Aug) to kick-start Northern Ireland’s largest arts festival and celebrate Harp’s sponsorship of the popular West Belfast event. The Angel was getting in on the act at the iconic ‘Big Top’ which will host headline act UB40. The tent is pitched in Falls Park ahead of the start of the festival this weekend.

This year also marks the 27th anniversary of the West Belfast Féile and the festival organisers have pulled out all the stops, securing a stellar line-up for the event. As well as 80’s pop sensation UB40 (featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey) a host of other big names will join the line-up including: The Wolfe Tones, The Human League and Country Goes West.

The ten-day August Féile takes place over the first two weeks in August and includes: music concerts, comedy, exhibitions, discussions and debates, literary events, dramas, out door and community events, street performances, carnival parade, international food fayre, sports, tours and walks.
