Live at The Marquee is one of Cork’s proudest event, taking place every summer at the Docklands. It has attracted high profile acts in the last decade such; Elton John, Kayne West, Lady Gaga and Diana Ross.
Live at the Marquee originated in 2005 when Cork was the European Capital of Culture. With it being such a success it was decided to continue as an annual event.
Peter Aiken, of Aiken Promotions, created the unique event choosing the Docklands and marquee style venue. “The success of Live at the Marquee is proof that the city can sustain a permanent indoor events and concert venue” said Aiken.
2016 is the event’s 12th year and the line up is set to be just as amazing as previous years. Taking a trip down memory lane, acts such as The Corrs, Simply Red and Nile Rodgers will be performing. International girl group Little Mix will take to the stage and we will see the return of loyal group The Coronas.
