Kicking off tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m., Havenstock takes place all weekend in the Haven Hotel. First up this evening is a George Michael tribute act. Artist James Bermingham transforms into the legendary George Michael for an incredible night of music spanning the legacy of the iconic singer. At the helm of The Amazing George Michael Tribute, James will take fans through the melodic journey of his top hits, from the classic days of Wham to the solo songs of Faith, Fast Love and Careless Whisper.

Then on Saturday, join in to celebrate the music of Phil Lynott and Shane MacGowan, two of the absolute icons of Irish music, with a double bill of Thin Az Lizzy and Pogueology.

On Sunday, prepare for the bands to Rock You with a double bill of Qween and Guns Reloaded.

You can find tickets here for all Havenstock acts over the weekend.
