About the Festival


Now in its seventh year, Atlantic Sessions on the North Coast is gathering a reputation both among performers and music lovers. It is a high quality, musical feast, showcasing original music interpreted by artists in a number of ways from traditional to contemporary, from electric to acoustic.

Atlantic Sessions has emerged as a permanent feature on the cultural calendar creating an energetic, vibrant atmosphere in the pubs, hotels and bistros in Portrush, Portstewart and Portballintrae. We are also pleased to be able to offer Acoustic Afternoons in some of our local coffee shops with amazing coastal backdrops.

The FREE Music Trail, will feature over 40 live original music gigs at various venues, while headline ticketed acts will perform at Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart and Portrush Town Hall.  Atlantic Sessions offer a platform for up and coming talent as well as established artists from across Northern Ireland and beyond to bring their music beyond the urban hubs.

Events at Flowerfield Arts Centre and Portrush Town Hall are ticketed (see under ‘tickets’), however all the other gigs are FREE!
