June 20th and 21st will see a thus-far mystery array of guitar players, singers and other artists appear at a music event set in a whiskey company's base.

The Irish company in question, Bushmills, has decided to use its distillery for the purpose of the music performance.

In the second world war its factory was used to house those in the armed services, according to its website. It is hundreds of years old.

"I can promise you that the acts that will be performing are both known and loved around the world," said Colum Egan, who works for the company as a distiller.

"We are in the final stages of confirming all the artists and I can't wait to tell you who will be playing," he added of the event, which will be known as Bushmills Live.

"It will be fantastic to host some of our most famous friends," enthused the 'excited' Mr Egan, who revealed that "the best of handmade music" would feature.

The festival can be attended by those achieving success in a contest for tickets on Facebook.
