The Old Bushmills Distillery today announced that it will throw open its doors to play host to world class headline acts and emerging indie talent at ‘Bushmills Live’ – a two-day festival celebrating handcrafted whiskey and music.
Bushmills Live will take place on Ireland’s North Coast on 19th and 20th June 2013 and is stated to be the only indie music festival in an Irish Whiskey distillery.
The indie folk band, Of Monsters and Men will headline the two day festival – their first ever gig in Northern Ireland.
Music and whiskey fans can win the chance to attend the festival by entering a draw on the Bushmills Irish Whiskey Facebook page – http://facebook.com/bushmills1608.
Ragnar Þórhallsson, singer with Of Monsters and Men, said: “Playing a show in such a unique location, around the centuries-old warehouses and whiskey barrels, to such an intimate audience, is an experience we are very excited about. It’s going to make our first gig in Northern Ireland a memorable one, and not just for us, for the fans too, we hope!”[ Also Read: Wine to Shine; No Cheer for Beer ]
