Kingfishr announces October Bank Holiday date at the Gleneagle INEC Arena

Limerick-based 3-piece, Kingfishr, have quickly established themselves as one of the rising prospects in Irish music. Part of the newest generation of Irish contemporaries, the band’s grand, atmospheric tone married with their propensity for catchy melodies has resonated with a wide audience. In 2 short years, they have racked up over 10 million streams on Spotify to date, were included in Spotify’s Fresh Finds UK & IE: Class of 2023 and began 2024 as Spotify RADAR: First Listen UK & IE Artists. The trio have started the year strongly, a festival performance at Eurosonic was quickly followed by eight sold out headline shows across the UK and Ireland. The tour concluded with two sold out shows at 3Olympia Theatre in Ireland, a live recording of which will be available on the 7th June. Kingfishr have been announced as the support act for Tom Walker’s upcoming 14 date tour as well as for Cian Ducrot at St Anne’s Park, in June and Snow Patrol’s show at Thomond Park Stadium, in July. Summer 2024 will also see the band perform at festivals across Europe including Glastonbury, TRNMST, Isle Of Wight, Reading and Leeds, All Together Now, Sea Sessions, Down The Rabbit Hole, Rock Werchter, Montreux Jazz and many more. The band were  announced to play at the prestigious Glastonbury Festival last week saying that they feel “Lost for words and eternally grateful” for the opportunity. “We’d need a week to sum up everything we’re feeling. Having spent the last two years playing on a farm in Tipperary, it’s an enormous privilege and an honour to be asked to play at a slightly less prestigious farm across the sea.”  Kingfishr spent the summer of 2023 supporting established musicians including world-famous rock legend Bruce Springsteen at BST Hyde Park. They have also had support slots for George Ezra’s UK/ Ireland tour as well as Dermot Kennedy’s Limerick shows at Thomond Park & in Dublin at Marlay Park. Alongside this were a run of festival dates that included Electric Picnic (main stage), Neighbourhood WeekenderLive At LeedsLatitudeAll Points EastSea Sessions Indiependence. They have also appeared on BBC Introducing Belfast and performed on Irish TV Series Other Voices.
