Legendary English band The Specials will visit Bangor, County Down, this August to play an outdoor concert as part of Open House Festival. The gig on Bangor seafront, overlooking the marina and Bangor Bay, will take place on Sunday 25th August, during the bank holiday weekend.
This will be the seventh annual Bangor Festival, and the twentieth year of Open House, which originated in Belfast in 1999 and played a pivotal role in the redevelopment of the Cathedral Quarter.
Open House Festival Bangor runs from 1st to 31st August – the only month-long festival in Ireland – with around 140 music, theatre, book, comedy, spoken word, film, food & drink and visual art events. The full programme for the 2019 festival will be released in May.
Tickets for The Specials will be available from www.openhousefestival.com from Friday 15th March.
