UK’s biggest new band The 1975 and Gary Lightbody and Peter Buck’s supergroup Tired Pony came together to complete an amazing day at ‘Bushmills Live 2014’, the World’s Only Whiskey and Music Festival in an Irish Distillery.
At the Old Bushmills Distillery on Ireland’s north coast, they were joined by American indie-dance band Rubblebucket, Irish singer and songwriter James Vincent McMorrow’, Luke Sital-Singh, David C. Clements, Matthew And The Atlas and Levity Breaks.Gary Lightbody said: “Last night was Tired Pony’s first gig in Ireland and it was unlike any other gig we’ve played before. The atmosphere was great.”
Master Distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery, Colum Egan, said: “The 1975 and Tired Pony were sensational and it was fantastic to continue to provide a platform to up-and-coming talent. The atmosphere backstage was like an old school reunion with so many friends of the festival in attendance – the craic was brilliant!”
