Jedward to join Vanilla Ice on Ross stage?
IRELAND'S X-FACTOR heroes Jedward will play a free, open-air show in New Ross – if talks this week between Dunbrody Festival organisers and the twins' management team are successful.
Hopes are high that the brothers Grimes will visit Ross for the town's festival in July. If they do, they will almost certainly reunite onstage in New Ross with confirmed Dunbrody festival performer Vanilla Ice, who collaborated with Jedward on their number-one hit single 'Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)'.
Among the other attractions on the tenth Dunbrody Festival menu are Fun Lovin' Criminals, Brendan Bowyer, The Bards, Brian Kennedy, The Coronas, the 'Man in the Mirror' Michael Jackson Tribute show which rocked the O2, Queen Tribute band 'Flash Harry' and a Battle of the Bands competition.
The festival line-up for the tenth annual festival, which will take place from July 16-18, will be unveiled today (Wednesday).
'This year marks ten years of the Dunbrody Festival so we are trying to have the biggest and best yet and that is why we are out early' said Deputy Sean Connick, Festival Chairperson.
