Since they were formed over a decade ago in 2001, The Script have become one of the most popular Irish bands of the 21st century.

Credited as a major influence on artists such as U2, The Pogues and Sinead O’Connor, Christy continues to tour and record and the dynamism of his performances, as demonstrated on his live albums Live in Dublin, At the Point: Live and Live at Vicar Street, is not to be missed.

Commonly referred to as the “Godfathers of electronic music” Kraftwerk pioneered the genre in the 1970s and their influence on other bands is incalculable. So ahead of their time, we are still catching up. Few bands arouse such intrigue as this quartet from Dusseldorf who will be performing a two hour show. Notoriously reclusive, Kraftwerk rarely provide interviews or media appearances and opt to send their robot doubles as stand ins for official photographs. Their live appearances are also becoming increasingly infrequent so Irish fans are in for a double treat witnessing this enigmatic band in breathtaking grounds, never before used for this purpose.

Rendered in straight and stark terms, Gavin finds a little slice of himself at the centre of The Book Of Love. The 22-year-old who won the Choice Music Prize for Song of the Year has seen his debut EP (Say Hello) remain on the Irish chart for over six months. This rise and development in his home market has gained Gavin sell-out headline dates and wider support tours with the likes of Lianne La Havas, James Blunt, Beth Orton, Kodaline and Marina & The Diamonds. Gavin’s great grandparents on his mother’s side were both famous Irish Opera singers and had their own albums released in the early 1900’s. He started playing the guitar at the age of eight, gigging around Dublin’s Temple bar.

Walking On Cars are creating sounds as beautiful and dramatic as the landscape that envelops them. From the Dingle Peninsula, the five creatives friendship gave way to a tuneful collaboration, borne out of a desire to write music. With songs reflecting both the isolation and consolation of Dingle, this year Walking On Cars look set to add to their increasing number of admirers.

Pushing the sound higher, Sorcha Durham (pianist) and Dan Devane (lead guitar) give life to these Melodic imaginings.
