Paint the town green with a parade of St. Paddy’s hits on a playlist & pop-up channel

As you don your green apparel and fill your house with the half-beloved, half-maligned aroma of corned beef and cabbage, soundtrack your St. Patrick’s Day celebration with our annual pop-up music channel and a holiday-themed special featuring modern and contemporary Irish music.

On St. Patrick’s Day itself, March 17, shamrock around the clock with contemporary music from artists like Flogging Molly or jig to classic from The Dubliners, The Chieftains and others all day long. While urban legend says St. Patrick is famous for driving snakes out of Ireland, this day-long soundtrack will drive away your blues faster than you can say “sláinte.” Hear it starting at 3am ET on The Spectrum (Ch. 28), or Channel 505 on the SXM App from March 15 at 12am through March 18 at 8am ET.


Whether you’re shipping up to Boston for holiday revelry or celebrating the luck of the Irish right in your own backyard, Paint the Town Green: The Ultimate St. Paddy’s Day Music Mix has the perfect tunes to get the party going. From Celtic punk and rock to more traditional Irish and Celtic tunes, enjoy over five hours of Sinead O’Connor, The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Enya and much more.



This St. Paddy’s Day, U2 X-Radio (Ch. 32) hosts shine a light on some of the brightest up-and-coming Irish artists, including Fontaines DC, Touts, Just Mustard, Elaine Mai and more. Hear from U2X hosts Dan Hegarty, Phil Taggart, Jenny Huston, Rocky O’Riordan and Gavin Friday during The 17 Latest and Greatest on March 17 at 8am ET.
