Headliners The 1975 and Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody's supergroup Tired Pony were previously announced to perform at Bushmills Distillery on 12 June.

It has now been revealed the acts who will be joining them include singer/songwriter Luke Sital-Singh, Matthew and the Atlas and Brooklyn-based band Rubblebucket.

Luke Sital-Singh's mentor is Tired Pony member Iain Archer. Luke said: "Iain and I shared the occasional Bushmills while making my debut album and he's always talked about the unique atmosphere at Bushmills Live. I'm very excited to experience it for myself."

The winner of last year's Bushmills Live Legacy Fund - an initiative set-up to help artists' career progression - David C. Clements is returning to play the main stage having toured with Snow Patrol and Ed Sheeran recently.

The winner of this year's Legacy Fund, Belfast band Levity Breaks, will also perform.

Bushmills Master Distiller, Colum Egan, said: "It's fantastic to have such a rich and varied array of talent coming to play at the distillery - from Brooklyn to Belfast and beyond.

"We decided that this year's festival would be curated by the artists themselves. Many of the acts performing already enjoy close bonds and are sure to strike up new ones on what promises to be a brilliant day of music."
