Globally acclaimed singer/songwriter Dermot Kennedy has been added to the Summer 2023 line-up at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

Tickets for this unmissable gig go on general sale at 10am on Thursday April 6 via scarboroughopenairthetare.com
A dynamic and powerful live performer, Dermot has become one of the biggest and fastest selling Irish artists ever thanks to his mesmerising music and unforgettable live shows.
He has just embarked on his biggest ever UK arena tour to date – performing to more than 120,000 fans – which culminates with a massive show at The O2 in London on April 14.
He then heads out for a summer of outdoor shows – now including a headline show on the Yorkshire coast.
Dermot’s platinum-selling debut album Without Fear was the biggest selling album of the millennium by an Irish artist. Hits such as Outnumbered and worldwide smash Giants deservedly earned him a huge following.
Follow-up album Sonder, built upon the massive success of Dermot’s debut and included a collection of his most heartfelt, uplifting and unifying songs to date. Singles Kiss Me, Something To Someone and Better Days (which reached Gold status in the UK) catapulted him back to Number One in the UK Album charts
Nominated for the ‘Best International Male’ BRIT Award in 2020, Dermot has now amassed FIVE BILLION streams across all platforms, making him a platinum-selling artist in more than a dozen countries.
Beginning his musical odyssey as a busker on the streets of Dublin at the age of 17, Dermot’s unique ability to unify through his music has been apparent since the inception of his organic and meteoric rise.
His poetic, compelling music has resonated with music lovers across the globe, with Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes all calling themselves fans.
