It’s been a long wait since the last Cork Jazz back in 2019, but the beloved festival is finally back, and this year’s line-up is nothing short of incredible.
The easing of Covid restrictions couldn’t have come at a better time as the festival is set to take place from October 22-25, and organisers have been working hard this year to bring us some top-notch international acts.

The festival, which will be the first major event in Ireland in over 18 months, is one that has been attracting thousands of music fans to the city each year, since the very first Cork Jazz way back in 1978.
One of the main headliners include the incredibly talented Matthew Halsall, a Manchester-based musician who has played a huge part of a major jazz revival in the UK.
Also on the cards for the weekend include King Kong Company, DJ Jenny Greene, Mick Flannery and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, to name but a few.
