A Festival of Jazz in Belfast


Hello and welcome to Brilliant Corners #5

There are five candles on the Brilliant Comers birthday cake this year! Where does time go?

We’re back with another incredible line-up featuring some of the most varied, exciting, and interesting music around.

This year we pay homage to Charles Mingus with I Am Three, get experimental with Sirene 1009 and FAINT+, showcase local talent with Hands, Organ Failure, and Joseph Leighton, go full prog-rock with Belgian guitar trio Dans Dans and Norwegian guitar-bass-drum blasters Hedvig Mollestad Trio, before going out with a bang courtesy of Robocobra Quartet and Strobes.

There’ll be films too, with the Belfast Film Festival once again screening some not to be missed flicks at the Bean Bag Cinema.

If you have been before, you’ll know what to expect: amazing, surprising, life-changing music. If you haven’t, we hope you’ll come along and experience Belfast’s only jazz festival in all its bijou glory!

“Anyone can make the simple complicated. Creativity is making the complicated simple.” Charles Mingus
