June 20 and 21, The Old Bushmills Distillery, Bushmills, Antrim
June 20 marks the first ever time a festival has been staged in a whiskey factory, a feat dreamed up by the good folk at Bushmills. Naturally, the Old Bushmills Distillery in Antrim is the venue, and pop rock giants Snow Patrol, who we can only presume are huge fans of the Northern Irish tipple, lead the bill. But there’s a catch, when the organisers say their festival is a “money can’t buy experience”, they mean it. The only way to get tickets to the two-dayer is to log onto the brand’s Facebook page and enter the Bushmills Live competition.
ACTS: Snow Patrol, Foy Vance, Iain Archer and more to be announced.
