LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ Bushmills Official Website) Bushmills Irish Whiskey has announced that globally-renowned actor Elijah Wood will perform a DJ set at 'Bushmills Live' - the festival of handcrafted whiskey and music taking place at the Old Bushmills Distillery on the 20th and 21st June.

He joins a bill that already features multi-platinum selling band Snow Patrol - whose fee for the festival is being donated in full to the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast - and award winning artists Iain Archer and Foy Vance.

Wood, along with his friend Zach Cowie, will take to the stage under the name Wooden Wisdom. The duo has DJ'd at Bushmills launch events in the past, but this will be the first time that they will have performed at an event together outside of the United States.

Widely regarded as one of the most gifted actors of his generation, Wood has recently completed production for Peter Jackson's"The Hobbit," where he will be reprising his role as Frodo Baggins. Wood made an indelible mark in the trilogy of films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" in the lead role of the hobbit, Frodo. Directed by Jackson, the films; "The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Two Towers," and "Return of the King" were all critically lauded as well as being box office record setters. In addition, "Return of the King" won the Academy Award* for Best Picture as well as 11 Academy Awards in all, tying "Titanic" for the record. Wood is also the founder of record label Simian Records.

Fans of Bushmills Irish Whiskey can win the chance to attend the festival by entering a competition on the Bushmills Facebook page -

To stand a chance of winning they will have to submit a photo of themselves and a friend and explain why they and their friend should be in the audience for Bushmills Live.

Colum Egan, Master Distiller at the Old Bushmills Distillery said: "I am really looking forward to welcoming Elijah to the Old Bushmills Distillery. He is a great actor and DJ and I have already seen him perform at a fantastic Bushmills party in Los Angeles. The line up for Bushmills Live just keeps getting better and I now can't wait for 20th June!"
