Wake


  • Black Box, Belfast, NI 18-22 Hill Street Belfast Northern Ireland

If you’ve ever wanted to be part of a festival that combines incendiary theological exploration with the very best in art, music, magic, comedy, whisky tastings and tours, then Wake is the place for you.

Every year we open up this boutique festival to 50 people from all over the world. Over the festival we hang out, share our lives, explore radical ideas and conspire together by open fires.

The festival is designed to create a space where we can explore what it might mean to cultivate healthy individual and communal lives. 

For anyone interested in delving into the work of Peter Rollins and his pyrotheological vision, this festival offers an exploration of its theoretical underpinnings and its potential for personal and political transformation.

Spread over a variety of amazing venues nestled in the cultural heart of Belfast, Northern Ireland, Wake delves into one of the most controversial theological projects in one of Europe's most famous and vibrant cities.
