The 1975 + more tba.

Hopefully proving that they can organise a piss-up in a brewery, the makers of Bushmills Irish Whiskey are once again putting on a mini-festival in their distillery on the coast of Co Antrim. Tickets are only available by entering a competition on the brand's Facebook page before May 5, and even if whiskey's not you're tipple it's worth entering to hear the melodic indie-pop riffing of The 1975, who headline the event.

More acts will be announced, likely on a similar folk/rock/singer-songwriter tip to the 2013 line-up, which featured Of Monsters and Men, Jake Bugg, Willy Mason and Iain Archer. Plus, once you're there you can sit between the world's largest barrel oak headphones – crafted from whisky barrels by Bushmills to promote the festival – to hear the artists' sets. And who hasn't dreamed of that at some point?
