The much-loved festival makes a return 25-30 April next year and the application process for artists takes place between 1 November and 31 December 2016.

Festival director Maria Wilson said while many of the challenges still exist, it was easier planning a festival knowing what challenges one faced.

2016 was a tough year which saw many regular features of the entertainment calendar fail to make it as uncertainties around the economy persisted,

The return of HIFA will be good for artists who had seen performances spaces shrink.
