The amplified summer programme is set to feature Northern Irish electronic duo BICEP, US singer-songwriter Kelis, plus lots more epic artist collaborations
The Guinness Storehouse has today announced its brand new ‘Lovely Day for a Visit’ seasonal offering, which features all the summer must-dos under one roof, including an electric DJ set with Northern Irish dance music duo, BICEP, on 21st June and a very special performance by Kelis on 4th July.
Hot on the heels of Dermot Kennedy’s recent performance, the first of its kind on the roof of the Guinness Storehouse, Kelis and BICEP will continue the series of incredible ticketed live music shows taking place across summer in the heart of the Liberties in Dublin 8. What’s more, this will be Kelis’s only Irish performance in 2023, the year that marks the 20th anniversary of the star’s iconic hit “Milkshake”.
Having sold out Dublin’s 3Arena for their epic St. Patrick’s Day show earlier this year, BICEP has built a global reputation as one of the biggest names in underground and mainstream dance music with an avid following worldwide. Speaking about the announcement, BICEP said: “We’ve never done a show like this before, so the chance to curate this one-off DJ show in Dublin at the Home of Guinness for our Irish fans is really exciting.”
With years of chart-topping songs, resulting in millions of albums sold and numerous top 10 tracks, Kelis has released six albums, won Brit, Q and NME awards and has been nominated for two Grammys. Preparing for her firework performance at the Guinness Storehouse, Kelis said: “I am so excited to return to Ireland, especially as it’s so well known for art, culture and music – I just love coming here. I can’t wait to come back and be part of the Guinness Storehouse summer programme and get everyone up on their feet, dancing and celebrating this 4th July.”
The ‘Lovely Day for a Visit’ summer experience captures the best of the Irish outdoors under one roof. Everyone’s favourites, the beach and the park, have been reimagined throughout the Guinness Storehouse by Irish illustrator and Guinness collaborator Fatti Burke and include an indoor beach installation, the leafy greens of the Irish park and a bespoke busking piano for visitors to enjoy.
Meanwhile, Irish designer Cyan Ryan’s work will also be featured throughout the iconic building, reimagining the Guinness archives in a new way. Aches’ fantastic ‘We’ll be Dancin’ in the Sun artwork is also available for everyone to view at the Home of Guinness this summer as the perfect Instagram background.
The Guinness Storehouse entertainment showcase features great creative talent in the cultural heart of Dublin, in addition to great pints of Guinness. Whether you’re looking for something fun to do this summer, no matter the weather, look no further than the Guinness Storehouse, bringing together the very best of the Irish summer under one roof.
