Following a SOLD OUT SSE Arena, Belfast show in October 2017, Belsonic in association with Magners are proud to announce the largest ever Belfast concert for Irish pop rock duo Picture This at Belsonic next June 2018.

The bands first release Take My Hand went viral, generating 2 million-plus Spotify streams and over 1.9 million YouTube views since its release.

As the group’s independent self-titled 2016 Picture This EP enchanted audiences, they impressively sold out two dates at 3Arena Dublin and one night at the SSE Arena, Belfast.

Picture This have had a phenomenal rise over the past few years with the release of their self-titled album storming into the charts at #1, the highest charting entry for a debut artist in 2016.

Already certified platinum, the album has dominated the Top Five album charts since its release. The band have just come off the back of a sold-out UK and Ireland tour – playing music, breaking tunes and celebrating life.

Los Angeles-based trio LANY and Irish DJ and record producer John Gibbons has been announced as Special Guests at Belsonic 2018 alongside Picture This at Ormeau Park, Belfast on June 17th.  LANY (which stands for Los Angeles New York) were formed in 2014 by three friends: Paul Jason Klein, Leslie Priest and Jake Goss. LANY make music that aims an arrow at your heart; beautiful songs with swashes of synth, spare percussion, echoes of prime 1980s FM pop, of early-1990s R&B, of new-wave electronica, combining melody and lyrics to put down roots in your head and capture your heart. The LA-based trio – Paul Klein, Les Priest and Jake Goss – have amassed a huge live fanbase and last year alone played a total of 117 shows across twelve countries, selling over 32,000 tickets. With over 3.7 million monthly listeners on Spotify, LANY is the most streamed artist of all time through the Spotify Discover feature with ‘ILYSB’ also holding the title of the most streamed song of all time through Spotify Discover. The band released their self-titled debut album in June 2017.

The Dublin-born DJ, John Gibbons is now based in London and is best known for his 2016 single ‘Would I Lie to You’, which remixes the original song by Charles & Eddie.

Tickets priced £30 plus booking fee go on sale Saturday 9th December at 9am – buy yours here.
