Conor O’ Brien’s Villagers have garnered critical acclaim since the release of their first EP in 2009. Their debut album ‘Becoming a Jackal’ scored several award nominations including the Mercury Prize and the title track won an Ivor Novello Award for the Best Song Musically and Lyrically. A new album, ‘{Awayland}’ is due out in January. Sheffield boy-girl duo Slow Club are defined by sweet harmonious hooks and rockabilly beats. Their second studio album ‘Paradise’, released in September last year, generated widespread praise from music critics for its melodic and lyrical sensibility combined with bold and dark tones. Folk rock newcomers The Staves are adored for their beautiful harmonies, acoustic gentleness and flawless sound. Their debut album ‘Dead & Born & Grown is due for release next month.

Mark Foster, MD of Deezer UK and Ireland said, “Since launching in the UK last September and in Ireland last December, Deezer has remained committed to bringing the best of new music and content to music fans across the country. We are thrilled to be celebrating our first birthday with a gig featuring a stellar line-up of Irish and UK acts and to give our loyal users, not only in UK and Ireland but across Deezer’s 91 territories, the opportunity to watch the gig live from their very own screens, wherever they are”.
