A new festival is coming to Dublin and they're seeking to showcase Irish busking talent alongside their line-up.

Scottish craft brewers BrewDog are bringing Cinematic Circus to Dublin's Weston Airport on Saturday July 7.

They'll be scouring Grafton St in Dublin for buskers - three will be paid to busk at the festival and one will be chosen to perform on the main stage in support of Mullingar band Fallen Lights.

Scouts will be taking to Grafton Street on Friday to see what's on offer busker-wise.

Aside from music, there will be Ireland's biggest mobile outdoor HD cinema screen playing horror classic The Shining.  Festival goers can chill on sofas, deck chairs and old cinema seats laid out in front of the airports hangars.

There will also be a performance by Circus of Horrors, who reached the finals of Britain's Got Talent.

The act has been banned from several venues as it includes dangerous fire, sword and acrobatic stunts alongside Victoria style freak shows with Gothic, Steampunk, Burlesque and Voodoo themes.

As well as their own beer tents, Brewdog will be hosting four other Irish craft beer companies and all designated drivers will get free non-alcoholic Bredog Nanny State beer for the event which runs 4pm to 11pm.

Here's the schedule:
