Guinness Amplify festival adds the superb London Grammar, Hozier, Rudimental and Duke Dumont

It all starts in just over a month...

Electric Picnic may be over for another year, but there are still plenty of cracking gigs to be enjoyed around Ireland.


The Arthur's Day replacement event, Guinness Amplify, has added a few more brilliant acts to their schedule and we can't wait to see some of these musical maestros performing.

If ever you needed an excuse to pop into some random pubs across Ireland then this is it, as some of the best musical talent from Ireland and abroad could very well be playing in your local.

Fresh from another stunning performance at Electric Picnic, the fantastic London Grammar will return to these shores once again. The Hannah Reid-led trio were one of the highlights of JOE's weekend in Laois and we imagine that tickets for their gig will be snapped up quickly.

Dance fans will definitely be happy to see the fantastic Rudimental and Duke Dumont added to the billing, while JOE is delighted to see our friend George Ezra come back.


Seriously, he is brilliant, check this video out.

The all-conquering Hozier will also be playing, as will Dan Croll who has also been booked to perform.

The line-up for this festival is seriously impressive as these new additions will join the previously-announced Kodaline, Ellie Goulding, Walking On Cars, Daithí, Bastille, Disclosure and Jess Glynne. Guinness Amplify will also play host to some upcoming local Irish talent, as the organisers are looking to promote and encourage home-grown talent.

Over 800 acts have applied online and publicans all over Ireland have the envious task of choosing which bands will perform in their bar throughout September and October.


It all kicks off on September 11th and the schedule is as follows:

Leinster - 11th September to 14th September, 2014
Ulster     - 18th September to 21st September, 2014
Connacht - 25th September to 28th September, 2014
Munster   - 2nd October to 5th October, 2014
Dublin 9th October to 12th October, 2014

Have we mentioned that London Grammar are exceptional already? Well, they are...
