In the heart of Co. Antrim nestled between the major towns of Ballymena and Magherafelt lies the village of Portglenone. The village rests along the banks of the River Bann, which has been immortalised by countless artists and writers down through the years.
It is here in this idyllic setting that the 19th 'Gig’n the Bann' Cross Community Music and Dance Festival will take place from the 13th - 16th September 2018. The festival is one of the major events on the Summer Festival Calendar having built a reputation for offering a most impressive line-up of top performers spanning Traditional, Scottish and Folk Music circles.
