Jordan Nocturne's Guide To BelfastJordan Nocturne
Producer and DJ, Jordan Nocturne, has toured the world having DJ'ed his genre-blending sounds since he was a teen. Currently, he runs his own label 'Nocturne' and keeps the city's nightlife scene alive by throwing an array of parties with 'The Night Institute'. A Belfast native, Jordan's guide touches on all the spots that are central to the city, from overindulgent sandwich shops to places to experience local art collectives and DJs.
"People always describe Belfast as the sort of place you can stop strangers and ask them for directions, they'll keep you talking for five minutes. It's a city with a lot of history and the people are full of character. East Belfast is going through a bit of an exciting time at the minute with lots of little pockets of creativity popping up, and I'm excited to play a small part of that with our parties over there." Read Jordan's guide to see the exciting spots that make up the ever-evolving Belfast today.
