Bushmills Irish Whiskey have announced that the actor Elijah Wood, star of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will be performing a DJ set at their ‘Bushmills Live’ music festival in June.
The actor, along with friend Zach Cowie, has DJ’d at Bushmills launch events in the past under the stage name Wooden Wisdom, but this will be their first set outside of the USA.
Wooden Wisdom join a line up for the two day festival at the Old Bushmills Distillery which includes local heroes Snow Patrol as well as award-winning artists Iain Archer and Foy Vance.
Colum Egan, Master Distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery said in a media release: “I am really looking forward to welcoming Elijah to the Old Bushmills Distillery. He is a great actor and DJ and I have already seen him perform at a fantastic Bushmills party in Los Angeles. The line up for Bushmills Live just keeps getting better and I now can’t wait for 20th June!”
The Bushmills Live Festival takes place on 20 and 21 June 2012. Tickets are available only from entering the competition on the whiskey maker’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/bushmills1608.
