The singer was part of the Arthur's Day line-up back in 2011 alongside The Scissor Sisters, Aloe Blacc and Calvin Harris. She is adamant the annual celebration did not encourage or endorse binge drinking.

"I didn't get offered a single pint of Guinness when I played it, not one – and I asked plenty of times," she told the Irish Independent. "I can tell you it's not a boozefest. I thought it fun, it was a really good line-up, I'm sad to hear it's over."

Faith headlined Groove Festival in Killruddery House in Bray on Saturday, and spoke of her ties to Ireland and her friendship with former 'Love/Hate' star Robert Sheehan.

"We met at a Louis Vuitton party a while ago. He's very naughty – and so am I. We're like bold children."
