Limelight Belfast

Already established as the most famous venue for live music in the country (having hosted legendary shows from the likes of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Primal Scream and Manic Street Preachers), The Limelight Complex has recently enjoyed a major overhaul!

We recently opened Limelight 1 (in the space formerly occupied by The Spring and Airbrake), a multi-million pound live music and club venue with state-of-the-art lighting and sound that has welcomed Anthrax, Disclosure, The Darkness, Primal Scream, Snow Patrol, Steve Aoki, Slayer, Two Door Cinema Club and many, many more since opening its doors in September 2012.


The original home of live music - The Limelight (renamed Limelight 2) now boasts improved lighting and sound while the always welcoming Katy's Bar enjoyed a simple, subtle refurb. This was followed by The Rock Garden, a brand new roof terrace.

Limelight 1
Limelight 1 is the newest addition to The Limelight complex, a brand new purpose-built live/club venue. The venue has recently hosted live shows from acts including SLAYER, TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB, THE BREEDERS, DISCLOSURE, STEVE EARLE & PRIMAL SCREAM.

Limelight 2
The Limelight 2 first opened in 1984, and has hosted a veritable "who's who" of live acts, including THE STROKES, MANIC STREET PREACHERS, JOE STRUMMER, BLUR and countless others. The venue regularly hosts live & club events.


Katys Bar
Situated minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, Katy's offers a casual, relaxing atmosphere open 7 nights a week with DJs most nights until late. One of Belfast's best locals.
