Dermot Kennedy 

Ahead of two sold-out 3Arena shows this December and following the incredible international success of his debut album 'Without Fear', Dublin singer-songwriter & musician Dermot Kennedy has announced his largest ever Belfast show to date.

Dermot Kennedy fans in Northern Ireland are in for a treat as he will take to the Belsonic stage next summer at Ormeau Park on Thursday June 25th 2020. 




Kennedy is best known for his biggest 2019 single "Outnumbered" which you've probably heard on Q Radio and sung along to!

Dermot Kennedy tells us his debut 12-track album is “my best effort in presenting myself to the world,” he thinks. And as ever, it shows his ability to span a whole range of emotions, often in the space of just one song.

“I wanted it to represent darkness and sorrow but also hope, and that battle between them, and the way that in life you’ll inevitably experience beautiful things and terrible things,”
 he says of the LP. ‘Without Fear’ dwells directly on a time when, just as he fell in love, he lost a close family friend. Writing songs has helped him deal with that rollercoaster time. “This is the only way I know how to put feelings across,” he says. “Great people like Van Morrison, they did this too. So, you’ve got to do it.”
