Could it be you?

Ed Sheeran has joined a group of musicians - including Hozier - who have agreed to sign up for the world's largest and most unconventional global music festival.

Sofar Sounds have teamed up with Amnesty International to host the festival on 20 September, with 300+ gigs taking place in more than 60 countries, including Ireland, in support of the world's refugees.

You can apply to host or even just attend one of the gigs by visiting the Sofar Sounds website here.

Hozier is already confirmed to be playing a show in Dublin, while Imelda May has also signed up to the movement and will be visiting a fan's home in London.

Sheeran is expected to be on tour on the East Coast of the United States around the time of the festival, although it is not yet known where in the world his sitting room gig will take place.


While you're here...

Why not hit play on the video below to let funnyman Fred Cooke woo you with his sexy French accent, Dara Dynamite ditches the Speedos to become a Kingsman, Mayo band Flat Out put the woe of the All-Ireland Final behind them to perform the Magic Cover and Justine Stafford takes to the streets to find a date for the Debs.

We also caught up with the cast of Kingmsan: The Golden Circle – Taron Egerton and Mark Strong – as well as the stars of new Irish film Maze – Barry Ward and Nidge himself, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (and his wonderful hat).

It's all jam-packed into this week's episode of The JOE Show, so what are you waiting for?
