Music fans, take note! The full line up for this year’s Quarter Block Party has been revealed.

The festival will sprawl through the city’s streets and venues with over 50 music, art and theatre performances.

Having already announced bands like God Alone, Maija Sofia, Lemoncello and Aoife Nessa Frances before Christmas, the festival is brimming with some of the best of Irish bands, international artists, and an exciting and idiosyncratic dance and theatre programme.

This year the festival has partnered with Jameson Irish Whiskey to bring its first weekend-long free music trail, taking place at bars and venues from Barrack Street to North Main Street, in addition to its bumper ticketed programme.

Festival organiser Caoilian Sherlock said: “We are really delighted to have Jameson involved in the festival this year, it means that Quarter Block Party can offer more free performances to audiences throughout the weekend and that we can support even more talented young artists and bands that will I am sure we will hear a lot of over the course of the next year.”

The opening music event will take place on 7 February at An Spailpín Fánach.

Friday night also welcomes Queent, as part of the Live Art Programme, from San Francisco with Monique Jenkinson and her drag queen alter-ego Fauxnique and Mica Sigourney also known as VivvyAnne ForeverMore serving killer moves.

Live Art Curator Ruairí Ó'Donnabháin said: “We are so excited to be working with some of the best local and international artists to bring this amazing festival to Cork, Quarter Block Party grows every year and we know that audiences won't be disappointed. Things might seem pretty grim in the world right now, but Quarter Block Party is celebrating the light in the darkness - it will be a dark party!”
