Guinness: Arthur's Day - TV Specials

Stuart Kinch, Guinness Marketing Manager, Diageo Western Europe

Following on from last week's announcements, today Guinness announced details of eight more music events for Arthur's Day: Arthur’s Day TV Specials. These events will take place in Cork, Dublin and Belfast, and will be part of Guinness's bid to put live music into 500 pubs across Ireland. The Arthur’s Day TV Specials will be recorded for later broadcast, both in Ireland and around the world, to give people who couldn’t be there, the opportunity to experience Arthur’s Day.

These events will feature some amazing home grown and international talent such as Rudimental, Jessie Ware, Willy Moon, P Money, Aluna George, This Club, The Riptide Movement, The Original Rudeboys, The Minutes, Lilygreen And Maguire, Josh Osho, Jake Bugg, Smiler, Dream Mclean, The Milk and Dublin Gospel Choir. As well as surprise performances from some of the headline Arthur’s Day artists.

Speaking about his Arthur’s Day visit, Professor Green said; "Myself and a few mates are heading to Ireland on September 27th to host a unique night at a surprise location to celebrate Arthur's Day. Expect a special night of music and more! Here's to Arthur!"

To get hold of tickets to these events, fans just need to apply through the Guinness Facebook Page from Wednesday 19th September.
