Dermot Kennedy All My Friends music video

The music video for All My Friends has been released.

Dermot Kennedy has dropped the music video for his song All My Friends and it’s set at Electric Picnic.

The video tells the story of two friends as they live out their EP dreams. It starts by showing the girls attempting to set up their tents, later following them to Dermot Kennedy’s set at the festival.

Starring Irish actors Jordanne Jones and Lauryn Canny, the video was impressively filmed in just one day.

Dermot posted the video to his YouTube channel, alongside the following caption:

“My good friend Brendan Canty has made this short film about my set at Electric Picnic last year. The best live moment I’ve ever had. Singing these songs to a sea of people at home meant so much. I hope you enjoy this X.”

The uber-talented Irish man has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame, people are more in love with him than ever. One of the breakout stars of last year, he developed his sound busking on the streets of Dublin, soon garnering worldwide attention after he was invited to join Glen Hansard on stage.

Commenting on Electric Picnic and the inspiration behind the short film,  Brendan Canty said:

“Dermot Kennedy playing the mainstage at Electric Picnic 2019 was a monumental homecoming show for him. A landmark moment that underlined how far he has risen in just a couple of years – from busking on the streets of Dublin to playing to 20,000 people hanging off every word.”

He later added:

“I wanted to capture the youthful euphoria of a first festival experience – the magical highs, disappointments and redemptions between friends.”

This is making us excited for festival season.
