FANS of Christy Moore will be rushing to pick up one of the hottest tickets in town this summer as the Irish singer headlines this year's west Belfast festival.

Feile an Phobail yesterday announced its line-up for the carnival, now in its 17th year. Festival director Carol Jackson said this year's programme was "the biggest and best ever - as usual".

For the first time, Feile has organised an event outside west Belfast: Loudon Wainwright III will bring his honest humour and engaging stage persona to the Lyric Theatre on Saturday, July 31.

Other festival highlights include a concert by London-based urban act Big Brovaz, a hip-hop and R&B dance night with Radio One DJ Tim Westwood, and a comedy night with some of the best names in the business - Rich Hill, Adam Hills, Tara Flynn and Eddie Bannon.

On the literary front, there will be readings by Roddy Doyle and the carnival parade is sure to be another crowd-puller on August 1.

Full details of the festival programme, which runs from July 30 to August 8, can be found on the Feile website www.feilebelfast.com.
