It's that time of the year again as Belfast's most colourful Spring festival returns with a spectacular line up of music, dance, food, and of course flinging vibrant colour powder at one another! Returning in 2013 to a new home at Custom House Square, ArtsEkta's Festival of Colours promises the biggest colour frenzy to ever hit Belfast. Known across the globe as India's most energetic and vibrant holiday, the 'Festival of Colours' or 'Holi' (which translates to 'Colour' in Hindi) celebrates the arrival of Spring in a truly spectacular fusion of colour, culture and creativity.
Organised by the producers of the Belfast Mela, visitors will participate, learn and experience the vibrancy of South Asian culture and traditions through a fantastic programme of music, dance, visual arts and food. The line up includes traditional Punjabi folk dancing with live Dhol drumming as you have never seen it before, alongside a spectacular myriad of fresh local ethnic talent and an amazing Asian DJ. The main highlight of the festival will be the a two hour long colour powder party where visitors will get the opportunity to throw brightly powdered colour among friends grooving to contemporary and classic Bollywood beats. With thousands expected to participate this is one cultural experience you will not want to miss!
Custom House Square - 1pm - 6pm
