Dance and electronica fans will be delighted with the news this morning that one of the biggest acts on the planet is Dublin-bound for a big gig this summer.

Dutch DJ and producer Tiesto, who was once voted 'Best DJ of all Time' in a Mix magazine fan poll, will play the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham on Saturday, August 23rd.

He is set to release his new album 'Drive' next month.

He is the second act to be announced for RHK, following Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, who will play the venue with support from Primal Scream and Happy Mondays on Sunday, August 27th.
