IMBOLC International Music Festival is one of the highlights of the North West cultural calendar and one of Ireland's music festivals. The festival is renowned for not only presenting performances in a great atmosphere by world class artists but in championing up-and-coming talent in a range of genres. Its inclusive vibe celebrates tradition in all its many forms, including the rich diversity of folk acts from grassroots to cutting edge.

The festival continues to build on its success in creating an inclusive music community which embraces variety and supports access to music-making to as wide a range of people as possible, promoting the enjoyment of music to children, young people and families as well as specially devised music events for people with special needs.

The festival prides itself on the delivery of bespoke music commissions, in collaboration with a wide range of talented composers. This development of new work enables audiences to discover and experience new music and young musicians to explore their music creativity.

All in all, IMBOLC International Music Festival offers a first class music and cultural experience.

IMBOLC International Music Festival is generously supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Derry City and Strabane District Council.
