Guinness today announced the line-up of artists for Dublin’s Arthur’s Day 250th anniversary celebrations on September 24.

The celebrations begin in Dublin at 17:59 local time with a global toast to Arthur Guinness to mark 250 years since the signing of the 9,000 year lease on the St James's Gate brewery and kick off the beginning of the Arthur’s Day global events.

Some of the music industry’s biggest names including Tom Jones, Sugababes, David Gray, The Kooks, Razorlight and David Holmes as well as some of today’s most influential rising stars such as Imelda May, Republic of Loose, Mick Flannery, Reverend and the Makers, Mystery Jets, Noah and the Whale, Jamie Cullum and Calvin Harris will be joining previously announced artists such as The Enemy, Estelle, Soul II Soul, The Undertones and Kasabian for the Dublin celebrations.

Over 60 Artists will be performing in Dublin and around the world including New York, Lagos, Yaoundé and Asia to mark this remarkable milestone.

In Dublin thousands of people will be coming together to experience the live music events in over 30 venues across Dublin from intimate gigs in 28 Dublin pubs to 4 other music venues and a concert at the St James’s Gate brewery itself.

Grainne Wafer, Guinness Head of Marketing, said: "Consumers will see artists including Tom Jones, David Gray and Imelda May in a Dublin pub for under ten euro, which is a really exciting prospect. Each of the four studio venues will have up to seven international and local artists performing live for a 20-minute set; before making an unannounced appearance for 30 minutes when they perform live in an intimate pub setting.”

At 17:59 in Ireland and around the world, consumers will be joined by Artists and celebrities including Sir Bob Geldof, Guy Ritchie, Carson Daly, Jerry Hall and Sophie Dahl as they take part in this once in a lifetime moment and raise a GUINNESS to Arthur and toast the Arthur Guinness Fund.

Tickets will go on sale via Ticketmaster at 9am on July 23.

Tickets for the four studio venues and the 28 Dublin pubs will cost €17.59 and €9 respectively.

Proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to the Arthur Guinness Fund

Excellent, my apartment overlooks that. Anyone got a high-powered sniper rifle I can borrow?

They are playing inside a building, Hop Store 13.

This is going to sound realllllly pedantic....but are you able to change the incorrect spellings in the title of this thread, so that it shows up in searches?

I.e. Arthur's, instead of Arturs, and, Guinness, instead of Guiness.

I can't wait for these gigs.
Pity there isn't one happening in The Olympia though.

@Knifey_Spoony - did you try a PM to a mod before the public post?

Will you be able to get an accurate shot as they chew their jaws off?

I'll do my best.

You can have a go if you like (in exchange for a Pixies ticket!)
