Dermot Kennedy


16:30 - 17:00

Since the release of his stunning April 2017 EP, Doves and Ravens, and follow-up single ‘Moments Passed’, Dermot Kennedy has shot to over 80m plays on streaming platforms, been hailed as a “big, beautiful and bold” new voice by Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, won praise from everyone from TIME Magazine to Wonderland.

Regularly compared to Bon Iver –whose For Emma Forever Agoalbum was a turning point in Kennedy’s musical adolescence (“he just blew my mind”) –the 25-year-old describes his songs as struggles between two extremes: light and dark, love and loss, life and death, happiness and sorrow.
With new music set for release in early 2018 and bigger, better live shows around the corner, momentum is building quickly behind Kennedy.
