Welcome to the Belfast Tattoo


The Belfast Tattoo is now firmly established as an annual event for Belfast, and this year attracted a considerable number of overseas visitors to the City to attend the shows.

The Belfast Tattoo will once again have an international line-up and will feature over 600 performers, and will showcase some of the finest marching bands, musicians, and dancers from across Ulster and beyond, in a two hour show, building up to the Grand Finale of the Massed Pipe And Drums.

The 2016 Belfast Tattoo will contain a packed list of international, as well as local performers. If you enjoy the spectacle and playing of bagpipes, drums, brass and flute bands, precision marching, the style and grace of Highland and Irish dancers, exciting displays from European performers - The 2016 Belfast Tattoo is sure to be our most spectacular event to date and can be enjoyed by young and old: Something for all the family at the Belfast Tattoo

2016 brings with it the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme, a period in the history of Ireland which still to this day resonates with so many people and families across our country. The 2016 Belfast Tattoo will mark and pay tribute to, all of those men and boys, who selflessly gave their lives.
