HAIR RAISING duo Jedward have been confirmed to perform at this year's JFK Dunbrody Festival. Ireland's X-Factor sensation will perform a free, open-air show in July after weeks of negotiations between Dunbrody Festival organisers and the twins' management team. The Grimes brothers will reunite onstage with confirmed Dunbrody festival performer Vanilla Ice, who collaborated with Jedwad on their number-one hit single 'Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)'. This will be the first time ever that the fun-loving twins and the American rapper will perform on stage together.
'New Ross will be the only place to have Jedward and Vanilla Ice together so we are expecting a huge crowd,' said Sean Reidy, CEO of the JFK rust.
'We are absolutely delighted now. It has taken a while to pull it together but we finally got confirmation over the past couple of days that they are going to do the gig,' he added.
Some of the biggest acts in Ireland will be performing for this year's festival, which will be running from July 15 to 18.
Performing during the weekend will be Crystal Swing, the newest craze to hit Ireland, The Coronas, the Meteor Award winning Irish four-piece rock-indie-alternative band, Brendan Bowyer, comedian PJ Gallagher, Flash Harry and Man in the Mirror - the world renowned Michael Jackson Tribute show. 'It is a hell of a line up,' added Sean.
