Special arrangements for concert days

  • Indoor Tennis Centre and Ozone Complex will close all day.
  • Non-concert goers can access Ormeau Park by the lower gate off Ormeau Road nearest to Park Road, all of the gates off Park Road and gates off Ravenhill Road up as far as the Bowling Green. All other gates will be closed and unavailable.
  • Ormeau Embankment will close to traffic from 5pm – midnight. Special arrangements are in place for disabled parking and residents of Ravenhill Reach.
  • There will be road and traffic restrictions in place in the surrounding area from 5pm – midnight on many concert nights, including parts of the Ormeau Road being reduced to one lane. There will be road signage to advise of this, and please continue to listen to traffic information on radio and online.
  • Alcohol seizure points will be in place at both sides of Ormeau Bridge, and the Ravenhill Road junction onto Ormeau Embankment. Other seizure points will also be in operation around the site.
  • We will monitor noise levels at each concert each concert.
  • We will have additional street cleaning in place to ensure the area is litter free as quickly as possible.
  • The Indoor Tennis Centre and Ozone Complex, Ormeau Park and Ormeau Embankment will open as normal at all other times.


All entertainment and site works must end by 11pm each night.

A sound test will be carried out on Monday 12 June from between 7pm and 9.30pm to assess the appropriate noise levels for the entertainment. We expect this test to last around 1hour, and the sound levels may vary during it, to allow us to determine the optimum noise levels for the event.

We are working closely with the promoter to put measures in place to help manage the impact that noise will have on residents and the surrounding areas. We will monitor the noise levels throughout all the concerts. However, there is no guarantee that residents will not hear music and announcements from the event. A number of the shows will also feature lasers and stage pyrotechnics, which you may also hear.

If you have any issues please contact our noise service.
