Tired Pony, the supergroup created by Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody, have been added to the Bushmills Live 2014’ festival on Ireland’s north coast on 12 June 2014. Tired Pony join a line up with ‘The 1975‘, which will also be the band’s first ever performance in Ireland.

The band features Lightbody; REM’s Peter Buck; Belle & Sebastian’s Richard Colburn; and fellow musicians Iain Archer; Jacknife Lee; Scott McCaughey and Troy Stewart.

‘Bushmills Live 2014’ will be headlined by breakthrough British act ‘The 1975’ with more acts still to be announced. Whiskey and music fans will be invited to the Old Bushmills Distillery from June 11-12 for a festival of handcrafted whiskey and music in an Irish whiskey distillery.

The ‘money-can’t-buy’ festival tickets are not on general release. Instead, fans can win the chance to be at the Bushmills Live experience, which includes flights and accommodation, by entering a draw at facebook.com/bushmills.  The draw closes on 28 April.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey Master Distiller Colum Egan said: “I’m delighted that Gary is coming back to the distillery along with Tired Pony.  Tired Pony have had special guests perform with them in the past. Who knows who will turn up in June?”.

“This year’s festival is shaping up to be the best yet. The combination of excellent whiskey, appreciated responsibly, among friends and great music can’t be beaten. It’s why we started Bushmills Live in the first place.”
