For those travelling to the events, the PSNI has urged people to take heed of the latest road closures in the area and plan their journey accordingly.

PSNI Superintendent Gerard Pollock said: “Police have been working in partnership with the event organisers and various agencies in planning for the Belsonic concerts.

“We want to see everyone attending these shows to enjoy themselves while also obeying the law, acting responsibly and staying safe.

“If you are planning on getting a lift home after the concert with a friend or relative, be advised that the concert organisers have applied for a series of road closures which will see Annadale Embankment from the Ormeau Road junction, through the Ravenhill Road junction, closed between 4pm and midnight.

“This is to ensure the safe exit of people from the venue. Also there is a road closure affecting the M2 hill section on Friday, Saturday and Sunday which may affect journeys.

“Please agree your collection points bearing in mind that this road will be closed to through traffic, which may cause disruption in the general area. Arrange collection points away from the immediate area and please respect local residents.

“We want everyone attending the concert to have a great night, to stay safe, and remember the event for all the right reasons.”
