The Ards International Guitar Festival is back with a bang!

The Ards International Guitar Festival is back with a bang in April 2018 with a fresh new programme of guitar inspired gigs, free fringe events, guitar clinics with industry professionals and an exhibition featuring many of your guitar heroes by Steve McDowell. Expect a jam-packed line-up of blues, folk, rock, bluegrass and classical for guitar aficionados across the borough.
