Nell revealed her excitement to be opening the show on her Twitter reminiscing on the first time she queued up to get barrier for a Dermot Kennedy show in 2019 and “cried the entire night.”

She continues on talking about adding a photo from that night to her vision board and “now I get to play in Thomond Park supporting. This is so cool thank u @dermotkennedy.”

The Irish singer, who is actually the younger sister of Oscar-nominated Irish actor Paul Mescal, dropped her latest song In My Head back in March.

Fans were delighted to hear her new tune and shared their excitement at the prospect of hearing the song live.

Nell was announced as one of 40 new acts added to the Electric Picnic line-up earlier this week.

The almost 20-year-old (her birthday is on Friday!), revealed that her brother Paul is extremely supportive of her career choice and songwriting ability.

In an interview with Rolling Stone in July 2022 she said: “He loves music and always has something to say. Something positive to look at too.”

She continued on saying: “I love going back and forth on lyrics with him because we have a very similar brain and sometimes we’re both quite stubborn in our ways, so it’s nice to bounce off someone like him and get something better out of it.”

Dermot Kennedy will be taking to the stage in Limerick’s Thomond Park for two sold-out shows and a third consecutive night from July 7th-July 9th.

Cian Du Crot will be supporting all three nights, Kingfishr Friday and Sunday, and then Nell Mescal will take to the stage on Saturday night July 8th.

We hope you’re ready!
