Belsonic, Custom House Square, Belfast, Tuesday, August 17-20, Thursday, August 26-29
Belfast's biggest annual outdoor music festival kicks off on Tuesday with a double-headed treat for indie rock fans.
Already three albums into their career and a fourth on the way, Kasabian were the darlings at many of this years UK music award ceremonies (including scooping the BRIT Award for Best British Group), and headlining some of 2010's biggest music festivals.
Sharing the stage are Downpatrick's Ash (right), fast approaching their 20th year in the music business and making a homecoming appearance with a back catalogue of songs guaranteed to give Kasabian a good run for their money.
