The Guinness Storehouse is thrilled to announce its brand new ‘Lovely Day for a Visit’ seasonal offering, which features all the summer must-dos under one roof, including a very special performance by Kelis on 4 July, and an electric DJ set with dance music duo, Bicep on 21 June.
Hot on the heels of Dermot Kennedy’s recent performance, the first of its kind on the roof of the Guinness Storehouse on 21 June, Kelis and Bicep will continue the series of incredible ticketed live music shows taking place across summer in the heart of the Liberties in Dublin 8. What’s more, this will be Kelis’s only Irish performance in 2023, the year that marks the 20th anniversary of the star’s iconic hit “Milkshake, and BICEP’s only planned show in Ireland this summer.
With years of chart-topping songs, resulting in millions of albums sold and numerous top 10 tracks, Kelis has released six albums, won Brit, Q and NME awards and has been nominated for two Grammys. Preparing for her firework performance on the 4th of July at the Guinness Storehouse, Kelis said: “I am so excited to return to Ireland, especially as it’s so well known for art, culture and music – I just love coming here. I can’t wait to come back and be part of the Guinness Storehouse summer programme and get everyone up on their feet, dancing and celebrating this 4th July.”
Having sold out Dublin’s 3Arena for their epic St. Patrick’s Day show earlier this year, Bicep have built a global reputation as one of the biggest names in underground and mainstream dance music with an avid following worldwide. Speaking about the announcement, Bicep said: “We’ve never done a show like this before, so the chance to curate this one-off DJ show in Dublin at the home of Guinness for our Irish fans is really exciting.”
The ‘Lovely Day for a Visit’ summer experience captures the best of the Irish outdoors under one roof. Everyone’s favourites, the beach, and the park, have been reimagined throughout the Guinness Storehouse by Irish illustrator and Guinness collaborator Fatti Burke and includes an indoor beach installation, the leafy greens of the Irish park and a bespoke busking piano for visitors to enjoy.
The experience will offer visitors a unique chance to enjoy a day at the beach with friends and family, sampling the stunning panoramic Dublin views over a pint whilst being surrounded by the best of summer under one roof, no matter the weather. Meanwhile, Irish designer Cyan Ryan’s work will also be featured throughout the iconic building, reimagining the Guinness archives in a new way. Aches’ fantastic ‘We’ll be Dancin’ in the Sun artwork is also available for everyone to view at the Home of Guinness this summer as the perfect Instagram background.
Fatti Burke, artist and collaborator, said: “I am delighted to be teaming up with the Home of Guinness to bring the concept of ‘Lovely Day for a Visit’ to life. The fantastic beach experience, which will live within the building all summer long, promises to capture the fun and joys of spending sunny days at the beach to Dublin 8!”
The Guinness Storehouse entertainment showcase features great creative talent in the cultural heart of Dublin, in addition to great pints of Guinness.
