Big Generator have always been regarded as somewhat of a benchmark of how a band should sound and perform in their native Ireland.
With over 20 years hard work and experience under their belts, the band is still striving for more.
They have always shone in their live gigs with an honest energy and passion for always putting on their best show possible at the heart of their performances.
With an exciting new single due for release later this year the future is still as bright as ever for Big Generator.
On stage: 8.15pm
