About the Festival


Now in its fourth 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 a genre of music that can be adapted 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 and Portstewart, with satellite venues at Portballintrae and The Listening Post (Coleraine). We are also delighted to welcome on board some of our local coffee shops for some ‘Acoustic Afternoons’.

The FREE Music Trail, will feature over 50 live original music gigs at various venues, while headline ticketed acts will perform at Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart.  The event is set to showcase lots of great contemporary and traditional up and coming talent from across the Province, including some Atlantic Sessions favourites.

Events at Flowerfield Arts Centre and Riverside Theatre are ticketed events (see Tickets), however all the other gigs are all FREE!
