World-renowned rock band Snow Patrol is coming home

It has been nine years since the popular group played in Bangor at what was Northern Ireland’s largest ever outdoor concert and this year’s Ward Park 3 gig is set to be even bigger and better!

Fronted by Bangor man Gary Lightbody, Snow Patrol will be supported by a host of local musical talent that includes Two Door Cinema Club, who recently completed a worldwide tour, as well as other talented bands from across the country.

There will be plenty of buzz in Bangor throughout the weekend and local traders are getting ready to welcome the influx of visitors.

“The last time Snow Patrol played in Bangor, the total economic value to the town from the concert exceeded £1.6m,” said Geoff Thompson, President of Bangor Chamber of Commerce. “Almost 10 years later and our town centre businesses, hospitality and retail sectors are looking forward to a much needed boost ahead of the summer season. It will be a great weekend for Bangor!”

Bangor will be open for business and to help cater for the massive increase in footfall, Ards and North Down Borough Council, in conjunction with Bangor Chamber of Commerce and South Eastern Regional College (SERC), will ensure visitors are able to make the most of their visit to the Borough.

SERC’s tourism ambassadors will be strategically located throughout the town to offer advice and information to visitors about the area while local businesses will feature some special Snow Patrol weekend offers.

Tickets for #WardPark3 are available from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online at
