Cork gains new festival in inaugural Quiet Lights this September

Ruth Cronin

Quiet Lights is a new small scale music festival in Co. Cork which will run from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th September.

The festival aims to shine a light on the new wave of Irish folk and traditional talent that are forging new paths such as Dowry and Saint Caoilian while also appraising more established acts such as Katie Kim and Lisa O’Neill.

Quiet Lights will operate similarly to Other Voices or Hard Working Class Heroes in that gigs will be held across the city in local pubs and venues including Coughlan’s Live, Sirius Arts Centre Cobh, The Roundy, St. Peter’s and The Chapel at Griffith College on Wellington Road.

Tickets vary in price per act and are available now here.

The line-up includes:

  • Katie Kim
  • Radie Peat
  • Lisa O’Neill
  • Slow Moving Clouds
  • Ye Vagabonds
  • Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh
  • Landless
  • Inni-K
  • Cormac Begley
  • Saint Caoilian
  • Dowry
  • Claudia Schwab
  • Elaine Malone
  • Lucia Mac Partlin
  • Maria Ryan
  • Culture Vulture
Lisa O'Neill :: Dreaming
Ye Vagabonds :: Lowlands Of Holland
