Hit the North Street Art Festival

Date: Thursday 20 to Sunday 30 April 2023

Venue: Kent Street and various locations


Over 60 artists will take part in this ten-day street art festival.

To celebrate its 10th birthday, the ‘Hit The North’ (HTN) Street Art Festival will welcome an impressive roster of artists with the internationally-renowned R.O.A. and Studio Giftig confirmed as headliners.  Artists from across the UK, Ireland and Europe will also participate in festival events.

Seedhead Arts, with support from Hennessy NI, is getting ready for the ten-day celebration. The festival will culminate with a ‘paint jam’ in Kent Street on Sunday 30 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 established in 2013 as part of rejuvenation efforts in the North Street area of Belfast. The festival’s influence and impact has grown significantly 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 helping bring Northern Ireland'rich cultural heritage for mural art into the twenty first century.
