11:55 EDT Thursday, June 13, 2013

BUSHMILLS VILLAGE, Northern Ireland, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The full lineup has been released for Bushmills Live 2013, being held next week at the Bushmills Irish Whiskey distillery. Joining headliners Of Monsters and Men are the pop-harmony 4-piece band Sons and Lovers, who have just finished touring the UK with Ellie Goulding and One Republic. Also on the bill are musicians Willy Mason; Bear's Den; and returning for their second year: Iain Archer and Foy Vance.

Bushmills Live is the only music festival that takes place inside an Irish Whiskey Distillery, where consumers are able to celebrate authentic music while enjoying whiskey responsibly among friends. The festival first launched last year, and will again take place on Ireland's stunning North Coast on June 19 and 20, 2013.

Music and whiskey fans of legal drinking age were able to win the chance to attend the festival by entering a draw on the Bushmills USA Facebook page, Facebook.com/BushmillsUSA. The pair of winners will be announced in the coming weeks via the whiskey's Facebook page.

These artists join last year's list of fellow rockers such as the iconic band Snow Patrol, Elijah Wood of Wooden Wisdom, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Marcus Foster, The Staves, General Fiasco and David C Clements who all played Bushmills Live in its inaugural year.

Bushmills Live video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjyzNFGuRmoTo launch the festival, Bushmills commissioned some good friends who are artisans to make a 3D art installation that depicts the Bushmills Live poster using materials inspired by the handcrafted whiskey and music at the heart of the festival. The master craftsmen who cemented their friendship when creating the stage set for a hugely popular American television epic that was filmed in Belfast ? used 254 casks, 250 bottle tops, 30 bottles of whiskey, five metres of AMP wiring and four guitars to handcraft the 10ft by 16ft installation artwork.
