The Snow Patrol singer will perform at the Old Bushmills Distillery alongside REM's Peter Buck, Belle & Sebastian's Richard Colburn and fellow musicians Iain Archer, Jacknife Lee, Scott McCaughey and Troy Stewart.

The band will appear at the north coast festival on 12 June in their first ever performance in Ireland.

This year's Bushmills Live will be headlined by The 1975, with more acts still to be announced in the upcoming months.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey Master Distiller, Colum Egan, said: "I'm delighted that Gary is coming back to the distillery along with Tired Pony. Tired Pony have had special guests perform with them in the past. Who knows who will turn up in June?

"This year's festival is shaping up to be the best yet."

700 tickets are available for Bushmills Live which runs from 11-12 June.

Tickets are not on general release, but music fans can enter a draw via the Bushmills Facebook page.
