10,000 people attend first live music event in Ireland since pandemic began

A crowd of up to 10,000 people attended a live music event in Falls Park, Belfast last night.

The music event, which is the largest of its sort since the start of the pandemic, was part of this year’s Féile an Phobail.


In order to have gained access to the event, concertgoers were required to provide proof of vaccination, a negative NHS lateral flow test within 48 hours of the event or recovered from Covid-19 in the last six months.

Such high demand for the event resulted in 500 free tickets being given to young people who attended a Féile vaccination unit on August 3rd.

The Diversionary Féile Music Night featured DJ Paul Van Dyk and Judge Jules.


Falls Park also played host to a boxing night which took place on Friday.

The boxing night, which was a sold-out event, involved local former Olympian Michael Conlan, who won the interim WBA featherweight world title points win over TJ Doheny.

Other upcoming events will include the Cage Conflict IV MMA Fight Night, Back to the 80s, and The Wolfe Tones.
