3 Hill Street, BT1 2LA Belfast, United Kingdom
Our Winter beer garden marquee is coming back and this is the second night showcasing the best local bands on stage. This is not one to miss…

Magwere — Magwere are an energetic 11 piece band fronted by Wilson Magwere, based in Belfast but originally from Zimbabwe. They play upbeat African 'Gullash' music, guaranteed to get you moving.

Their 'Gullash' (music from under the water) sound is influenced by Zimbabwean rebel music with elements of funk, reggae and dance. World music filled with electrical storm rhythms, beats saturated with pure job, bass clicks, autowah cajoling, drum battles and vocal catharsis. This will be a unique display of music and sure to get the onion bouncing!

Beatndrum Samba Band — Belfast based community samba band, formed in 2004. They have collaborated with many local artists and bands from across the world, taught a series of workshops teaching the lively street carnival rhythms of Brazil and beyond!

Band interests include Samba, Maracatu, fast drumming, head banging, street parties, good times, dancing, singing and being very very silly. Bring it on!

Free entry — BBQ from 6pm
