Check out what the Guinness Storehouse has lined up with its summer programme ‘Lovely Day for a Visit’.

The amplified summer programme is set to feature US singer-songwriter Kelis,  Northern Irish electronic duo BICEP, plus a truly unique Fatti Burke beach installation and lots more epic artist collaborations all summer long! There are more announcements soon to follow.

Coming up on Wednesday next, June 21 is electric DJ set with dance music duo, BICEP, and on Sunday, July 4 next will be a very special performance by US sensation, Kelis.

Hot on the heels of Dermot Kennedy’s recent performance, the first of its kind on the roof of the Guinness Storehouse, on June 21, 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”.

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 July 4 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 July 4.”

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.

In advance of the gig, 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.”
