Cork Jazz Fest Returns

The Guinness Cork Jazz Festival is set to return this October, after being cancelled last year due to Covid-19 restrictions.corkjazz
First held in 1978, the festival has hosted legends of jazz such as Ella Fitzgerald, Herbie Hancock and BB King over the years.
It will be held in Cork city over the bank holiday weekend from 22-25 October.
Under the Government's current reopening plans, most restrictions are set to lift on 22 October.
Fiona Collins, who chairs the festival, said all involved are "delighted" to bring the festival back this year.


"We're working through the programming and are excited to bring much loved performances, as well as emerging local talent, to the streets and venues of Cork this bank holiday weekend," she said.
Lord Mayor of Cork Councillor Colm Kelleher said: "On behalf of the people of Cork, the local business owners, hoteliers, bar and restaurants owners, as well as all of the musicians who will be involved again this year in The Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, we are absolutely thrilled to welcome back the Festival."
Mr Kelleher said that the economic impact to the city, as well as the vibrancy and energy it brings, is "unparalleled".
"There is nothing else like it," he added. "This is the great news we all wanted to hear."
Full details on the programme of events will be released over the coming weeks.
