This series of events, which encompasses both music (of very varied types and vintages) and comedy, had its beginnings in 2005 when Cork was the European Capital of Culture. It was intended as a one off event, but proved so popular that it has returned every year since.

All the performances take place in a large Marquee specially erected in Cork’s Docklands area, a once ramshackle part of town that has seen extensive development in recent years. While the marquee is large – it can hold up to 4000, mostly standing – it makes a very intimate venue and the events have a very particular and special atmosphere.

Acts in 2017 include Cliff Richard, Elton John, The Coronas, Nathan Carter and Christy Moore.
