Soul Fest set to return to Cork this August
Soul Fest, Ireland’s only Soul music festival, is returning to Cork city this August 26th– 28th with a jam-packed programme of funk, soul, and entertainment.
Headliners Karen Underwood and Laoise Leahy take over City Hall on the Friday and Saturday and tickets are on sale now!
Programme Director, Sinéad Dunphy of Eventi Management said:
“Soul Fest is the new name, but the festival still has its original heart and soul at it’s very core! The festival was one of the first to return to live gigs last year despite restrictions lifted and we’re going bigger and better this year with more concerts, bigger venues, and more surprises!”
The festival has had a big year so far and has recently completed a social outreach programme with DEIS schools around the city that featured a musical experience with Karen Underwood funded by the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Arts Fund in partnership with Business to Arts. The programme brought soul music and stories into the lives of children in DEIS schools from the Community Response Areas with a unique music and educational experience.
