Now here’s a change for NI2012….it’s a non Titanic festival, and even better, it’s in a distillery!
We are loving the news that Bushmills, our very own NI whiskey brand, are hosting a 2 day festival on 20th and 21st June 2012 and it will be the first ever staged in an Irish Whiskey distillery.
We have no news yet on who’ll be performing, but we’ve been assured that some of the brand’s most famous fans will be playing a series of intimate gigs at the distillery. Just imagine, a festival unlike any other, in age-old buildings where the art of distilling has been practiced for generations.
‘BUSHMILLS Live’ will be a ‘money can’t buy experience’. Tickets for the event won’t go on general release, instead fans of BUSHMILLS Irish Whiskey can win the chance to attend the festival by entering a competition on the Bushmills Facebook page – facebook.com/bushmills1608. Entry opens at 16:08 GMT on 17th March 2012 and closes at 23:59 GMT on 27th April 2012. Terms and conditions apply.
With over 100,000 visitors a year, the distillery which is very popular on the tourist trail, are excited to host some of their most famous friends as part of ‘BUSHMILLS Live’. It will surely be a unique and special festival bringing the best of handmade music and the best of handmade Irish Whiskey together under one roof. So get entering and good luck!
