The ticketed pub venues include Lavery’s of Belfast, Dakota and Whelan’s in Dublin, Nancy Blake’s in Limerick and Rearden’s in Cork. Music fans can also look forward to a choice of 500 free music events featuring the best of Ireland’s musical talent, in local pubs across all 32 counties.

Speaking about joining the Arthur's Day bill Kodaline said: “Arthur’s Day is really special. It’s great to be part of something where over a thousand Irish musicians will perform as part of one huge music event on the same night all over the country, and all in local pubs. There are a lot of talented musicians out there that find it hard to be heard, so it’s good to get a platform to showcase their music and get some new fans.”
