Pretty poor camera work there. The stage looked pretty impressive at night:

It seems to have been pretty successful, with 20,000+ in attendance, although it was pretty heavily advertised from what I hear? Seems like a good venue for the larger summer gigs.

It's a bit unfair to label it a chavalanche. You're obviously going to get a high number of chavvy types there, but there would be plenty of genuine electro/house fans too. (I wasn't there, just going by what I've heard/read)

Great venue and no need to clean up the thousands of pieces of rubbish left behind, as it is already a landfill site.

Just ask the visitors to kindly tramp their litter into the ground where it will join the millions of tons of other pieces of domestic waste on which they are standing.

ps What happened to all the suggestion Belfast City Council called for, in relation to this place? I sent in a 44 page document detailing how it could be turned into a family fun-park, replica mini-volcano complete with spewing fake lava; accompanied by sound effect godly voices of doom and demonic laughter. They never even wrote back :-(

More peurile, pointless babble masquerading as sarcasm from the Master of the negative post, SnailTroll .
It's clear you hate the place, so my advice to you is stop wasting your energy on all this negativity – take a holiday, relax... Unless of course, you actually get a kick out of spending so much time venting your sneering contempt for all things Belfast... which is just plain weird.

yes, Crusaders have a north fore-shore brochure on their website, says they are planning on having an ultra modern 4000 seater stadium built there, so they can host non-senior international games and get away from that crater on the shore rd.

wee bit of good news.

we need some good news seeing as the friggin' eejits in sinn fein and sdlp look set to block the welfare bill.

Construction is underway to create a £9.5 million green technology business park on 65 acres of Giant’s Park, near Dargan Road. It will be the first of its kind in Northern Ireland.

This work will install the 1,734 metres of roads needed to improve access and set up key services. Sites will then be marketed to potential investors, and the infrastructure should be completed by spring 2016.

The loughshore wasteland that could soon be a fantasy factory for film-makers

It may look like a desolate wasteland, but a patch of land in north Belfast could be set to attract movie stars and film-makers from across the world.

The North Foreshore was used from 1958 to 2007 as a landfill site, and since then has been the subject of debate for redevelopment. At more than 340 acres, it is the largest development site in the city and now plans are afoot to transform it into a film-maker's playground.

As Northern Ireland builds its reputation as a filming location for major productions such as Game of Thrones, NI Screen is planning to build a new film studio on the North Foreshore site - just across Belfast Lough from Titanic Studios, more popularly known as the Painthall. The studio has been proposed by NI Screen, the company responsible for promoting Northern Ireland as a destination for filming.

Belfast City Council has been told that the North Foreshore is being considered by NI Screen as a location for a new film studio. Councillors voted to endorse the plan, and also heard that the proposal will be subject to legal advice on disposal options due to the site's history.

NI Screen also owns Titanic Studios and the Linen Mill studio in Banbridge which is set to be expanded. It advertises a number of other spaces including Edgewater Road, Dargan, where the BBC's The Fall was filmed, Kilroot, KBL Mill, Ballyclare and Central Park, Mallusk.

Northern Ireland is becoming increasingly popular as a destination for filming since we pulled in our first high-profile US studio project with Tom Hanks' production team for City of Ember. Universal Pictures followed to film Your Highness here and in 2009 HBO first arrived to film a pilot of Game of Thrones which has gone on to become a worldwide hit and is currently filming its fifth season around Northern Ireland.

It is hoped that a new film studio at the North Foreshore would help develop the growing industry even further.

Meanwhile on the southern section of the North Foreshore site, Belfast City Council is working with the European Regional Development Fund to deliver an Environmental Resource Park. Councillors on the North Foreshore Steering Group have visited the Eden Project in Cornwall for inspiration. The North Foreshore site comprises of 340 acres and is the biggest regeneration site in Belfast. Council's vision is to transform the former landfill site into a positive and sustainable asset.

What to do with the North Foreshore site has provoked a lot of debate, including suggestions of a golf course, sports pitches and a private sector leisure attraction.

North Foreshore Film Studios

A proposed film studios complex comprising four buildings; (1) Production (37,450 ft2); (2) Stage 01 & Stage 02 (66,000 ft2); (3) Stage 03 (45,000 ft2); Workshop 01, 02 & 03 (46,170 ft2).

The complex is located within the Giant’s Park development site at the North Foreshore. The former landfill site extends to 340 acres. A Cleantech Hub is currently proposed on 30 acres of the site, aimed at companies working in renewable energy, solar power, recycling and other environmental technologies. The proposed film studios complex will sit alongside these proposed developments.
