Live at the Marquee 2017


Live at the Marquee is an annual music festival which takes place in Cork, spanning almost the entire summer. The first festival occurred in 2005 when Cork was the official European Capital of Culture. It has since grown into a huge yearly festival which has become synonymous with Cork.

Live at the Marquee, unlike other festivals, each gig is independent of the other so ticket prices vary across the board. The Event will run through June and July with top acts appearing down in Cork throughout.
