Bushmills Live, the two day festival of all things folk rock and whiskey hosted by The Bushmills distillery, will take place over June 19-20, and headlining the event will be indie folk rockers Of Monsters and Men.

All the performances will all take place at the Distillery itself, providing a setting of whiskey casks and pot stills in which to enjoy the music and a dram or two.

Last year's festival featured the likes of Snow Patrol, singer-songwriters Foy Vance and Iain Archer, Elijah Wood, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Marcus Foster, The Staves, General Fiasco and David C Clements, and the event has also showcased such up and coming artists as The Staves and Ed Sheeran.

The only way to obtain tickets – limited to 500 in total – for the exclusive event is via a prize draw on the distillery Facebook page. Closing date for entries is May 5.
