Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading electricity supplier, powered up a host of emerging NI music acts last night (Friday 20 September), during the opening hours of Culture Night and Day 2019.
Kicking off the highly anticipated event, Power NI lit up Cathedral Gardens, transforming the space into the magical Light Gardens, and filled it with music fans for the first ever Power NI Presents… stage at Culture Night.
U105’s Carolyn Stewart welcomed Northern Ireland’s top funk and soul acts to kick off the mini festival, which was headlined by Belfast Community Gospel Choir.
The fun continues today (Saturday 21 September) for the first ever Culture Day with the Power NI Photo Experience as well as 500 hot drinks being given away from neighbouring Power NI supplied business, Curated Kitchen.
Gemma-Louise Bond, Senior Sponsorship & Events Executive at Power NI said the company was committed to encouraging local talent; “Getting involved with Culture Night and Day for the second year has been a blast, and we’re really proud to power up a fantastic line up of homegrown talent on our Power NI Presents… stage.
“Last year we produced the iconic light show story on St. Anne’s Cathedral, and as Culture Night and Day has evolved, so have we, to include a variety of games, fun, music and of course, electric vibes for all visitors to enjoy.”
Friday night’s stage talent included Bangor’s Aeons, Ghost Notes and Manukahunney Blue and today (Saturday) will welcome Alice LA, Cherym and the amazing Cathedral Quarter Choir presentation of CHANT.
