Guinness to kick off summer by opening Dublin St James’ gates for first ever open-air concert with Disclosure

May 14, 2024

Guinness has announced that it is kicking off a festival of summer events in May, by inviting music lovers through its famous James’s Street gate for an outdoor concert.

Lovely Day to Open the Gates will be in the heart of Dublin 8, St. James’s Gate on Saturday 18 May where there’ll be live music performances by Irish and international artists and a festival of food created by local chefs.

Fresh from Coachella, Disclosure will be the headline act following the release of their fourth studio album Alchemy last July. This will be the first and only time they will perform live to an Irish audience this year.

Disclosure have clocked up over 11 billion streams, sold over seven million albums. They have played major global shows, from a sold-out Madison Square Garden, to headline slots on Glastonbury’s Other Stage and large-scale sets at Coachella.

Guests can expect festival vibes with a custom-built music stage and delicious food from Man Street Kitchen, Mani Pizza, Mamma’s Boy Food, Mushroom Butcher and Bish Bosh featuring local dishes inspired by the flavours of Guinness and our beloved Irish summer.

“This is a huge moment for us. For the first time ever, the brewery will be transformed for one day only for an open-air music spectacular,” Jeanette Levis, Guinness Marketing Manager said.
