Belfast: UNESCO City of Music!

**It is official; Belfast is a UNESCO City of Music! **

Congratulations to all involved in the process; two years of planning leading to a successful bid. A lot of work behind the scenes from the team at Belfast City Council and an honour for our CEO Charlotte Dryden to chair the City of Music committee as part of this.

Biggest thanks goes to the artists, musicians, bands, venues, promoters, DJ’s, songwriters, audiences and all the creative community that make Belfast sing, day in, day out. Without them there is no music city to talk about. We are the sum of many musical parts – past, present and future – making space for new and exciting sounds.

It has been a crushing time for music, so the timing of this is so important. Now to take this as an opportunity to make things better, push forward, look to the future, rebuild and celebrate what we have all known for a very long time, that Belfast is a music city!
