Will Guinness bring Mumford & Sons to your local pub?

Winston Marshall, Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett, Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons and musician Elvis Costello attend the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards

Folk rock talismen Mumford & Sons, Scottish alternative rock legends Primal Scream and New York hip hop icons Fun Lovin' Criminals have been added to the line-up of headline artists who will be turning up for surprise performances in local pubs in both Northern Ireland and the Republic during this year’s Arthur’s Day.

Taking place on 27th September, the 50 free Arthur’s Day music events take place in pubs throughout Northern Ireland.

Guinness is giving punters the chance to bring big name acts - Example, Tinie Tempah, Ellie Goulding, Mika, prolific UK rapper Professor Green, Fatboy Slim, Texas and Amy MacDonald - to one of the Arthur’s Day music events taking place in a local pub. Simply get behind your publican and vote for your local in the run up to Arthur’s Day.

To date, over 55,000 people have voted for their local pubs as anticipation is building for Arthur’s Day in every corner of Ireland. Voting will close on 16th September but in keeping with the spirit of Arthur’s Day, the winning pubs will remain a secret to the public until the night itself. Check out for full details.
