Trinity has announced two of the acts confirmed for headline performances at their Summer Series this July.

Walking on Cars and The Specials have both announced gigs at TCD. Performing on Friday, July 3rd and Saturday, July 4th respectively, the city will certainly come alive to the sound of music.

Walking on Cars has been keeping busy this year with shows all across the globe, both at home and abroad.

The popular four-piece rock band will embark on one final international run before returning home for a number of intimate shows around Ireland this December.

Also headlining Dublin’s New Year’s Festival this year, they’ll help to sing the city into a new year.

Ska superstars The Specials are set to perform the day after Walking on Cars. This follows on from three sold-out gigs at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre.

Touring their critically acclaimed album Encore, it’s the group’s first music for 37 years. Playing a mix of new and old, some of their much-loved classics include Ghost Town, Gangsters and A Message To You Rudy.

Tickets for Walking on Cars cost just under €50, while tickets to The Specials come in at €59.50. On sale next Friday, November 15th at 9 am via Ticketmaster.
