“We’ve promoted many large scale outdoor electronic events in recent years but always wanted to do a huge multi stage event of this kind. Feedback from our audience suggested that a huge appetite exists for a unique production of this kind in Northern Ireland. We’re lucky to have some of the world’s biggest names in dance music on our inaugural lineup of EMERGE Music Festival”Alan Simms – Co Promoter & Director
