The rowdy podcast duo are making their way to Cork in June 2023 for a massive outdoor show featuring special guests.
The 2 Johnnies have had a breakthrough year, smashing through goals many podcasts can’t fathom. The Tipp boys have reached a weekly audience for their show of 500,000, scored a second series for their TV show, secured a daily radio show on 2FM and were all the buzz at this year’s Electric Picnic.
Now, the podcast duo is taking on “their biggest challenge yet,” a one day festival at Cork’s Musgrave Park next summer, June 24. Moving the show that sold out Dublin’s 3Arena (twice) outdoors, ‘The 2 Johnnies “Pints in a Field” – The Usual Podcast Madness – In a Field,’ will mark the first stadium show for a podcast to date.
Tickets are on sale from €49.90 today, October 21 via Ticketmaster. The massive outdoor show will also feature special guests Basshunter, B*witched, The Junior B All Stars, Noel Furlong and Paddy Fong with more still to be announced.
Of the event announcement Johnny B expects the day to be, “Bigger than Live Aid but of far less benefit to society.
“It’s going to be the greatest atmosphere in a rugby stadium since Ronan O’Gara kicked a drop goal to win the Grand Slam in 2009.”
“They said it couldn’t be done or shouldn’t be done, anyway we’re doing it,” adds Johnny Smacks.
The announcement is part of the nation’s biggest podcast’s “masterplan” to have 70% of the Irish population in attendance at their shows by 2027. Well, they’re well on their way.
Tickets for ‘Pints in a Field’ are on sale now from €49.90 including booking fee via Ticketmaster. The one day festival takes place June 24, 2023 at Musgrave Park, Cork.
