The final full line-up has been announced for the BD (formerly Barn Dance) Festival scheduled to take place on Good Friday.
Jape and The Academic have just been announced for the Good Friday festival which will also feature headline sets by Leftfield, Benoit & Sergio, Ben Sims and Omar S. Also featuring are Mundy, The Hot Sprockets, Smash Hits, Eskies and Interskalactic.
Following the January release of the highly acclaimed album This Chemical Sea and a sell-out gig in the Academy last month, Richie Egan a.k.a Jape will bring his highly acclaimed live show based on his latest album to BD Festival this Good Friday.
Despite only forming in 2013, The Academic have an impressive back catalogue of gigs in Ireland including Other Voices, Electric Picnic, Longitude and Benicassim. The Mullingar foursome are releasing their debut EP in late April but are already reaching Irish airplay heights with their first single Different.
Given it's held on Good Friday, April 3, it's a BYOB festival which also has visual art and food to complement the tunes.
BD was voted Ireland's Best One Day Festival at the Irish Festival Awards this year after eight years on the go and this year they're adding Whelans, Abstract, Subject, and Together Disco on board.

TOGETHER DISCO CONFESSION SESSION
Stanley Kubrick was born in The Bronx on July 26, 1928: his parents were Jewish, and his father, Jack, was a doctor. As a child, he was bookish, and though his intelligence was obvious, he did not excel in school. When he was 13, his father bought him a Graflex camera. Stanley quickly become obsessed with still photography, and was just 16 when he had his first photo published in Look magazine. By the end of the 1940s, he was making his name as a talented freelance photographer, but was already becoming distracted by film-making.
