Arthur’s Day 2013 will take place on Thursday 26th September and will showcase the best of Ireland’s creativity and talent from the world of music and culture at over 500 free music events and creative showcases in pubs across the island of Ireland.
As always the Arthur’s Day line-up will see a variety of artists play in pubs across the island of Ireland, from the best and brightest of local musical talent including The Script, James Vincent McMorrow, The Original Rudeboys, Girl Band and Bouts; to internationally acclaimed artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Emeli Sandé, Janelle Monae and the legendary Bobby Womack.
Further artists will be announced later in the summer.
It goes without saying that Arthur’s Day will be a night full of surprises with acts turning up unannounced to perform in pubs.
Additionally, some acts will also perform at one of five ticketed music events, taking place in pubs across Belfast, Dublin, Limerick and Cork. Tickets will go on sale on 4th September, with proceeds going to the creative and cultural initiative, Arthur Guinness Projects.
At the launch, Barry Bracken, lead singer of one of Irelands most talked about live bands, Bouts, performed live to the invited guests.
