Belfast Ukulele Festival began (as all good ideas do) from a drink-infused conversation between a few ukulele enthusiasts from Belfast. We all are members of the fabulous Belfast Ukulele Jam (BUJ) – a merry band of 60+ uke players who meet once a week in the Deer’s Head bar in Belfast.

Somewhere among the big stages and dreams of stardom we discussed Belfast’s first EVER ukulele festival.
We have since formed a BUF committee and between us we organise all the festival activities.

We are delighted to present some amazing acts, workshops, open mic’s and group playing sessions and to show off what Belfast has to offer! There will be some local attractions involved, give-aways, raffles and of course the mighty craic that Belfast has to offer
