The Music Show returns on February 25 and 26 in the RDS with the ultimate weekend of music equipment, seminar discussions, master classes and of course, a live stage packed with Ireland’s best acts.

Just confirmed are the ever-impressive Bell X1, who enjoyed a tremendously successful 2011 with the release of fifth studio album Bloodless Coup and and a contribution to the New York edition of Other Voices. The band have played many memorable gigs in the past, including a support slot with U2 at Croke Park in 2009.

They’ll play a special acoustic set at The Music Show, joining a fantastic bill that includes Lisa Hannigan, The Cast Of Cheers, The Minutes, Royseven, And So I Watch You From Afar and many more.

Tickets are available (€12 one day, €16 for the weekend) on Ticketmaster.
