Hit the North Street Art Festival was established by Seedhead Arts and the Community Arts Partnership in 2013 as a response to vacant space along North Street. Hit the North is our spray art festival which runs in September every year. The festival also has a community engagement programme for groups to take part in.
Now in it’s fifth year, with the support of Heverlee, Hit the North has become one of the biggest street art festivals in Ireland, and this year boasts an amazing line-up of artists from across Europe.
Over the years, Hit the North has been supported by Community Relations Council, Belfast City Council’s Community Festivals Fund, Department for Communities, Arts and Business NI, Red Bull (2014), Becks (2015-16), Heverlee (2018-?) and several local businesses.
