Arthur is back – with a few friends

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Arthur’s Day will re­turn to Dublin, Cork, Belfast and Lim­er­ick for its third year on Septem­ber 22nd.

Orig­i­nally in­tended as a one-off cel­e­bra­tion of the 250th an­niver­sary of Arthur Guin­ness’s lease on the St James’s Gate brew­ery, the 2009 event proved so suc­cess­ful that or­gan­is­ers have con­tin­ued with the new tra­di­tion by bring­ing a host of in­ter­na­tional artists to play a va­ri­ety of pubs and venues around Ir­ish cities each year since. This year’s star at­trac­tions are a mix­ture of es­tab­lished acts and new­com­ers. Scis­sor Sis­ters, Calvin Har­ris, Paloma Faith, Stereo­phon­ics, Ash, Aloe Blacc, Miles Kane and Ed Sheeran, while Ryan Sheri­dan, Cashier No 9, Roy­seven, Bressie, Key­west, The Lowly Knights, A Plas­tic Rose and The Kanyu Tree head up the Ir­ish del­e­ga­tion.

Tick­ets go on sale on Au­gust 4th.
