The Arthur’s Day 2012 lineup this year is a massive national event. It’s covering the length and breadth of the land with over 500 pubs signed up to participate. So with so much going on, how will you find out where your favourite acts are playing? Or what to expect in your local pub. Perhaps you have multiple locals and need to decide where to plump yourself for the evening.

Well fear not, Goldenplec is on the case with everything we could find (and we’ll update as we get more information) on Arthurs Day pubs around the country. There are some great Irish acts littered throughout, some trad sessions, tribute acts and more all over the place. Never have you had so much choice of a Thursday evening.

We spotted Jape, Le Galaxie, This Club, The Minutes, Hogan, Delorentos Jerry Fish, We Cut Corners, Hush War Cry, A Neil Young and Garth Brooks tribute night, Master and Dog, The 4 of Us, Brush Sheils, Paul Toal, a band called Blue (though we doubt it’s the 90s pop act), an acts called Tommy Lee Jones (but we don’t expect the Men In Black star), Ryan Sheridan, Buck Taylor, The Strypes, The Hot Sprockets, Rubberbandits, Pugwash, Ghost Estates, Picturehouse, The Shoos, Created By Comets, Windings, Royseven and so much more. That is all without mentioning the lineups of the 8 TV venues.

So it’s a healthy dollop of Irish music out there. We can’t tell you where headliners will be. Not in the TV venues nor the pubs, you have to head down on the night and see who you get.

  • GUINNESS has already committed almost €8 million to multiple social entrepreneurs and their projects around the world
  •  Since 2009, Guinness has also committed over €3 million to the Arthur Guinness Fund in Ireland

Background:

  • Arthur’s Day is a global celebration that will see a series of music events and celebrations take place in cities around the world to celebrate Arthur Guinness, his remarkable legacy and the much loved GUINNESS brand.
  • The fourth annual celebrations will take place on Thursday 27th September and will be celebrated in over 55 countries. Celebrations will kick off in Dublin, to mark the year that Arthur Guinness signed the lease on the brewery in St James’ Gate, Dublin.
  •   2009 marked 250 years of the Guinness brand, which sparked a global celebration in honour of Arthur Guinness, the remarkable man, brewing entrepreneur and original philanthropist, who gave Guinness to the world.
  • The fitting tribute, inspired by the Guinness brewer and business pioneer included two major and intrinsically linked developments, the creation of Arthur’s Day and the Arthur Guinness Fund.
  • 55 countries including Great Britain, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Caribbean nations, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Japan, Singapore and South Korea, will all join in in this year’s celebrations to mark the philanthropic legacy of Arthur Guinness
  • This year’s celebrations will include live music events in over 500 local pubs across Ireland, featuring over 570 home grown artists such as Royseven, Mundy, Picturehouse, Delorentos, Dove, Jerry Fish, The Hot Sprockets, The Shoos, The Heads of State and many more.
  • This year, there are no tickets on sale and Guinness is giving you the chance to bring internationally renowned artists such as Example, Tinie Tempah, Ellie Goulding, Mika, prolific UK rapper Professor Green, Primal Scream, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Mumford & Sons, Fatboy Slim, Texas and rising star Amy MacDonald to one of the 500 Arthur’s Day music events taking place in a local pub near you. Simply get behind your publican and vote for your local in the run up to Arthur’s Day.
  • In addition, eight Arthur’s Day TV Specials featuring some of the Arthur’s Day headline artists taking place in pubs in Cork, Dublin and Belfast will give people who can’t make it out on the night a chance to experience the magic of Arthur’s Day and enjoy unique performances by some of the headline artists.
  • Also, for the first time ever, fans will also be able to watch the remarkable musical celebrations in Great Britain featuring Tom Jones live through http://www.youtube.com/GuinnessEurope and raise a glass ‘To Arthur’.
