GUINNESS have announced that folk rock talismen Mumford & Sons, Scottish alternative rock legends Primal Scream and New York hip hop icons Fun Lovin’ Criminals have been added to the stellar line-up of headline artists who will be turning up for surprise performances in local pubs in both Northern and Southern Ireland this year’s Arthur’s Day.
Taking place on September 27, this year there are no tickets on sale, just grab some mates and head to one of the free Arthur’s Day music events taking place in local pubs across County Armagh. It promises to be a remarkable night of live music featuring hundreds of home grown artists but, as usual, Arthur’s Day will also be a night full of surprises.
To date, over 55,000 people have voted for their local pubs as anticipation is building for Arthur’s Day in every corner of Ireland.
Voting has closed but in keeping with the spirit of Arthur’s Day, the winning pubs will remain a secret to the public until the night itself so you never know who might walk through the door. Check out www.Guinness.com for full details.
One of the potential venues is the Cellar Bar in Lurgan.
Through the Arthur Guinness Fund, Arthur’s Day supports social entrepreneurs in Ireland and around the world who are in the business of changing communities for the better. This year, for every ‘check-in’ by people to the Arthur’s Day Facebook event, a €5 donation will be made to the Arthur Guinness Fund by Guinness. Check out details on how to RSVP and ‘check-in’ on the Guinness Ireland Facebook page.
