On the 27th September, Arthur's Day returns for us all to tip a pint of the black stuff to toast the man himself. Again there are hundred of free events planned around the country, from small back bars to main headline venues. The main ''surpise headline acts'' for 2012 included Mumford and Sons, Primal Scream, Example, Tinie Tempah, Ellie Goulding, Fatboy Slim and Texas. Alongside the pub gigs taking place nationwide, there will be a further eight Arthur's Day TV Special music events taking place in pubs in Dublin, Cork and Belfast which will give people another opportunity to enjoy a remarkable Arthur's Day pub experience.
