The line-up for a new Irish music and arts festival aimed at the LGBT+ community has been announced today.

Love Sensation will take place at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin on August 17-18, 2019 and will see Lily Allen, Clean Bandit, Gossip and Kelis top the bill across the weekend.

The two-day festival, hosted Co Mayo drag star Panti Bliss, will also feature performances from RuPaul's Drag Race queens including Monet X Change, Naomi Smalls, Jujubee, Laganja Estranja and Sonique.

Love Sensation promoter Cormac Cashman said: “Love Sensation feels like a natural progression for us. We’ve wanted to run a music festival for years, something that caters to our community and focuses on inclusivity, fun, good music, good times and sound people.

"We’ve been lucky enough to have amazing success with our Pride Block Party (now in its ninth year) so 2019 feels right for us to grow even bigger and launch our very own music festival!”
