Biggest Ever Tennent's Vital Extends To 3 Days - 14th, 15th And 16th August 2013

Tennent's Lager and MCD are extremely excited to announce that Tennent's Vital 2013 will be the biggest EVER, with the festival extending to three days, with Avicii, Tinie Tempah, Rudimental and Tommy Trash gearing up to descend on Belfast's Boucher Road Playing Fields to continue the party on Friday 16th August. Organisers have also revealed today that top festival act The Vaccines have joined the bill for Day 1 (Wed 14th Aug). 

Swedish dance megastar Avicii is one of the most in demand DJs and producers in the world, and will headline the third day of Tennent's Vital. After making a big impression with hit single Seek Bromance in 2010 and his 2011 collaboration with David Guetta Sunshine, he was catapulted to global stardom by the Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling Levels, which dominated airwaves and dancefloors across the globe in 2012. Ranked no. 3 in the world's top 100 DJs by dance bible DJ Magazine, he made history by becoming the first DJ to headline New York's prestigious Radio City Music Hall, with tickets for one of the two sold-out shows snapped up in under a minute. Bringing his massive tunes and a touch of the super club atmosphere to the heart of Belfast, his Tennent's Vital headline set is not to be missed. 

Tinie Tempah is one of the biggest stars to emerge from the UK grime scene in recent times. His massive no.1 debut album Disc-Overy took the world by storm, spawning the smash hit singles Frisky, Miami 2 Ibiza, and the chart-topping Written in the Stars and Pass Out. A glittering array of prestigious awards - including multiple MOBOs, BRITs, Urban Music Awards, a UK Festival Award and the Ivor Novello for Best Contemporary Song for debut single Pass Out - are a testament to his major critical acclaim as well as his huge popularity as one of the freshest rappers around right now. He's sure to get the crowd going at Boucher Road this August. 

Also joining this year's ultra-impressive Tennent's Vital line-up are drum and bass stars Rudimental. The London four-piece rocketed to fame when their single Feel the Love topped the UK singles chart, before going on to become a multi-platinum smash hit success and earning them BRIT Award nomination for Best British Single. At the start of 2013 they returned to the number 1 spot with Waiting All Night, swiftly following up with a number 1 debut album. 

With a plethora of his own carefully created anthems, Grammy-nominated Tommy Trash is also hugely in demand as a producer, having remixed for the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki and Zedd to name a few. Hailed as one to watch by Rolling Stone Magazine and MTV, he is the perfect addition to Day 3 of Tennent's Vital.   

With a repertoire packed full of feel-good festival anthems, The Vaccines' high octane tunes are sure to go down a storm when they join Kings Of Leon on the bill for Day 1 of Tennent's Vital. Rising to the top in 2011 with their phenomenal top-five debut album What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?, the band then went on to win the Best New Band award at the NME Awards in 2012 and score a number 1 album with their second record Come of Age. They're supporting the Rolling Stones at their massive shows at London's Hyde Park this July, and are sure to deliver an epic live set at Tennent's Vital this summer. 

Nicola McCleery, Head of Marketing for Tennent's NI, comments: 

"We are incredibly excited to announce that Tennent's Vital 2013 will be our biggest ever, with three days of amazing live music at Boucher Road Playing Fields. Our partners at MCD have secured a phenomenal array of world class talent for this year's line-up.
