The final week of the festival boasted indie band Florence + The Machine as the headline act with CMAT as support.

Before Florence + The Machine graced the stage with a standout show, CMAT, the abbreviation for Ciara Mary Alice Thompson, an Irish singer and songwriter from Dublin, entertained the audience with a witty 45-minute set. Her set featured songs from her album If My Wife Knew I’d Be Dead. The songwriter has been supporting Florence + The Machine while on their UK and Ireland Dance Fever tour through Cork, Dublin and Belfast and will be hitting the road with her own headline tour at some up and coming dates across the UK and Europe.

Florence + The Machine have been touring this summer throughout the UK and Europe. The English band has been active since 2008 and have released their recent album in 2022 titled Dance Fever.

They opened a 90-minute set with Heaven Is Here, followed by King. Their performance included tracks from their newest album, as well as iconic songs from their extensive career, such as Dog Days Are Over and Cosmic Love from the 2009 album Lungs, among others.

The crowd were adorned in flower crowns and jewels matching lead Florence Welch’s magical aesthetic. In true Belfast style there was a refreshing rain storm through the headline show, but that failed to dampen the spirits of fans.

Belsonic Festival has now come to a close for 2023 but is to return next year and we can’t wait to find out who will be headlining!
