By Curious

Paint the City Black! It’s the exhortation from Guinness for Arthur’s Day, when 500 free gigs are staring across Ireland: a great apology – if one is needed, tells Irish Ferries – for an autumn break.
Named after the brewery’s founder, Arthur Guinness, this day – September 27, 2012 – is a great chance to party all together with Fatboy Slim, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Amy McDonald, Mika, Texas and a many other artists at 500 free gigs laid on across Ireland.
This year, Arthur’s Day is enlarging well across its roots in Dublin’s Temple Bar, to each corner of Ireland, with live music in local pubs from Derry to Dingle. A list of events and activities might be found at Guinness.
At that stage, that artist appears at which venue is under wraps, with votes which are being cast for the locals’ favourite pubs and venues. The most famous – does not matter how small or remote – they are going to host 1 of the star names on September 27. Hundreds of pubs and other venues have already confirmed other artists, so wherever the tourists are in Ireland on the day, they are going to have a great time for sure.
