Grace Jones Announced For Beyond The Pale


As bona fide music legends come, Grace Jones takes some beating. Since the early ’70s, her singular brand of art pop has spanned new wave, disco, R&B, reggae and far beyond. On albums such as Nightclubbing, Living My Life and Warm Leatherette, she has been a creative force fully unto herself.

This summer, the woman, the myth, the legend herself will top the bill at Ireland’s best festival at the moment, Beyond The Pale. Joining the likes of Hot Chip, Thundercat, Oneohtrix Point Never, Leftfield, Jon Hopkins and countless other acts already announced, Jones’ appearance marks her only Irish performance of the summer. Check out the full line-up below.

After a massive sold-out first edition last year, Beyond the Pale returns to Glendalough Estate in Wicklow across Friday 16th – Sunday 18th June. Weekend tickets are currently available for €195 here. A very-sound instalment option is also available.
