The first “Live at the Marquee” took place in 2005 when Cork was the official European Capital of Culture, the festival was a massive success and returned again in 2006 with international acts Kanye West and the legendary Bob Dylan taking to the marquee stage. The event has grown from strength to strength since its launch in 2005 with major international names topping the bill year on year.
2013′s event was no exception with none other than Elton John bringing his amazing live show to Cork. The Rocket Man singer performed an impressive 26 song set recalling all his major hits. Elton was in good company with Sting, Elvis Costello and ZZ Top all taking to the stage over the course of the Cork summer festival. 2013′s line up was an impressive mix of music legends, international superstars with chart topping acts like The Wanted, Passenger and Jessie J thrown in to add even more to this amazing festival.
It is only January, however that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about the potential line up for 2014. The provisional bill has been released and it’s another list crammed with legends of the music industry. Dolly Parton, Tom Jones and the Bryan Adams to name but a few have been confirmed to play the Cork festival during June and July 2014. The final line up is a long way off, but with such major industry names already announced all the signs are that 2014 could well be the best year yet.
