A concert site which will double up as a venue to watch the Euro 2016 competition is now essentially complete.

Although some work still remains to be done on the site at Titanic Quarter in Belfast, it was largely finished on Friday.

Yesterday was the first day the press was able to gain access to the site – where Alan Simms (co-organiser of Belsonic) and David ‘Rigsy’ O’Reilly (spokesman for the Euro fanzone) were pictured having a kickabout.

Belsonic is a large-scale music event, featuring concerts spread over both June and August.

It begins on Thursday, with a sold-out gig by dance music act Tiesto.

But the site is also being used to screen all Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland Euro matches – for free.

The first of these will be at 5pm on Sunday, when Northern Ireland will play Poland.

The gates will open at 3.30pm.

There is a bar on site, as well as a funfair.
