Post Punk Podge, The Bonk, Maija Sofia & Lemoncello among first announcements for Cork’s Quarter Block Party 2020

Luke Sharkey

Near and dear to many an Irish muso is Cork’s Quarter Block Party.

The music and performing arts festival hosts a plethora of Irish talent in various venues around the city every February. 2020 will mark the festival’s sixth edition.

Quarter Block Party 2019

Today, the festival has announced the first round of acts due to play at QBP 2020.

Musical oddities The Bonk will be performing with psych merchants Soft Focus on Friday the 7th in Cork’s newly reopened venue The Kino.

Post Punk Podge and his gang of Technohippies will take to the Kino on the 8th, with support with expert dial fiddler JARJARJNR.

Also performing in the 8th, albeit it in Coughlans, will be Lemoncello & Maija Sofia.

Aoife Nessa Francis shares the bill with Elaine Howley in Coughlans on the 9th.

The nation’s buzziest metal group God Alone will take to Spailpín Fanach (my favourite venue name) on the 8th, Dublin boyos Melts and Cork three-piece Pretty Happy will provide support duties. This one seems like a buzzy time.

There’s loads more to come with the festival promising over 50 events across its three day run time. Head on over to the festival’s socials for more details.

Tickets for each gig will be sold separately, but one may purchase a 3 gig bundle ticket, at €25+, off uTicket from Friday morning onwards.
