Museum of Modern Art, Kilmainham, Dublin
Bank Holiday Monday, 5th June 2017
We are delighted announce that Bon Iver will be headlining and curating the line-up for an incredibly special evening of music on Monday, 5 June. The show will take place on the beautiful grounds of the Irish Museum Of Modern Art at The Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin’s city centre.
Bon Iver, the musical project led by Justin Vernon, will headline the night - the band's first show in Ireland in over five years since selling out The O2 in late 2012. Bon Iver’s third full-length album 22, A Million was released in Ireland on September 30th of this year, hitting the #2 spot in the Irish charts and receiving huge critical acclaim.
Watch the 22, A Million Press Conference here.
Other acts being announced as part of this unique and curated bill will include Flying Lotus,Lisa Hannigan, The Staves, Gordi and Paul Thomas Saunders. More acts for the bill - all of which is curated by Bon Iver - will be announced in the new year.
Flying Lotus, an experimental, multi-genre music producer, electronic musician, DJ and rapper from LA will be performing along with his amazing 3D show.
Irish singer, songwriter and musician Lisa Hannigan’s 3rd album At Swim was released earlier this year to universal praise, topping the Irish charts. Her crystal, soaring vocals and beautiful melodies make for a breath-taking live show. Lisa performed at Justin and National's Aaron Dessner’s Eaux Claires Festival in Wisconsin this summer.
The Staves, a folk rock trio of sisters, hail from England. Their second full length LP, If I Was, was produced by Justin. They have toured across the US, winning over fans at every show.
Australian songwriter Gordi (AKA Sophie Payten) performed just this weekend in NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom with Bon Iver. Her ear for melodies with twinkly, acoustic-meets-electronic arrangements and vocal harmonies that swell and surge have made her one to watch – and one not to miss! Leeds born musician Paul Thomas Saunders will also be showcasing his 60s and 70s inspired dreamy, ethereal and psychedelic tunes.
More acts for the bill - all of which is curated by Bon Iver - will be announced in the new year.Stay tuned for more to be announced in the new year!
