Midtown Sounds

23 February 2018

BALLYMENA is the town that keeps on giving with the announcement that the first ever music event, Midtown Sounds, is being held in the town centre on Saturday 24th February.


Midtown Sounds, organised by the Ballymena BID and in association with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, will celebrate the best musical talent in Northern Ireland with a range of live performances planned at various shops and eateries throughout the town. Confirmed acts include singer/songwriter Brash Issac, Runabay and Sarah Crockett with many more yet to be announced.


Following the success of the Ballymena Means Fashion event, the Summer Carnival and Discount Day, Ballymena is proving the town really has something for everyone. Visitors have come from all over Ireland and as far away as Scotland for the town’s events and the event organisers believe Midtown Sounds will have the same appeal.


Ballymena BID manager, Alison Moore said, “We are very excited about the launch of Midtown Sounds in Ballymena. Alongside Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, we have secured performances from some of the best musicians locally and from across the province, and we’re delighted that they have agreed to showcase their talent.


“We want people to enjoy their experience in the town centre and with the wide range of retailers and the beautiful eateries and bars already available, the addition of live entertainment will be an added bonus.  Musicians will be placed in over 20 shops and eateries throughout the town centre from 12pm – 3pm on Saturday 24th Feburary and we have ensured, where possible, that the music in each venue reflects the ambience of the store.
