After a solid weekend hosting some of the best music on the planet at Oxegen, the Heineken Green Spheres universe continues to expand with the addition of Jape to the August Bank Holiday line-up in Kilkenny making it a full weekender.
Jape (aka Dubliner Richie Egan) plays Heineken Green Spheres fresh from recording his forth studio album. After enjoying massive critical acclaim with 2008’sRitual which scooped the annual Choice Prize for album of the year he was cemented into the list of greatest Irish singer/song writers. It came four years after its predecessor The Monkeys in the Zoo Have More Fun Than Me which contained single ‘Floating’ the track that saw Egan reach international fame, covered by The Raconteurs, remixed by Prins Thomas and played by 2manyDjs.
This Kilkenny weekender is another small step for Heineken Green Spheres but a giant leap for music lovers who are sure to travel from near and far for the out of this world gig. Having recently played host to Mumford and Sons, Goldfrapp, La Roux, Ellie Goulding and Hot Chip in the Heineken Green Spheres stage at Oxegen, the addition of Jape is another star to add to the series’ solar system of stellar acts.
Admission to Jape will be free on a first come, first served basis on the door. All gigs are over 18’s. For more information visit the Heineken Music website. www.heinekenmusic.ie.
