Previously announced acts who will be performing at one of a number of ticketed and surprise pub events across Ireland on 26 September include The Script, Emeli Sandé, Janelle Monáe and Bobby Womack.
Tickets for the pub events, which includes Lavery's bar in Belfast, went on sale on Wednesday morning.
Over 1,000 musicians will play 500 free music events taking place in local pubs across Ireland.
However the line-up of who will play at each venue will remain a secret until the night itself.
Commenting on their upcoming Arthur's Day appearance, 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."
Guinness spokesperson Stephen O' Kelly said there was "a great deal of excitement building" ahead of the Arthur's Day celebrations.
He added: "We're thrilled to announce more great Irish and international acts who will take to the stage on 26 September.
"With over 1,000 acts performing in pubs across the country, Arthur's Day 2013 will be an extraordinary celebration of the best of Ireland's talent and creativity."
Last year, rap artists Tinie Tempah and Professor Green surprised Belfast revellers when they showed up to perform secret gigs in the city.
Tinie Tempah made an appearance at The Botanic Inn in south Belfast, while Professor Green delighted fans at The Errigle Inn on the Ormeau Road.
