Located in the iconic Titanic Quarter, events promoters Dox Square are hosting a weekend of all-day live events on Saturday April 30 and Sunday May 1, kicking off the summer in style. As the good weather rolls in, attendees are in for an unforgettable weekend of live music, DJ sets plus excellent food and drinks in a takeover of Northern Ireland’s largest licensed outdoor venue.

On Saturday, Queen of Sax, Lovely Laura will take to the stage with her DJ husband Ben Santiago for an afternoon of live saxophone and house music. A regular on the festival and Ibiza club scene, Lovely Laura wowed audiences last Summer with her legendary saxophone set and is returning to the Titanic Quarter this year at Dox Square. With doors opening at 2pm, the Saturday set showcases Cool FM’s Pete Snodden and other leading DJs for guests to party ‘til late under Belfast’s famous cranes.

Headlining on Sunday May 1 will be Grammy Award-winning DJ, Roger Sanchez at Lush! Legends, held by Ireland’s premier clubbing brand, Lush!
