Quarter Block Party in Cork announces details of its 2017 edition

From February 2-5 2017 Quarter Block Party will take over Cork City.

 

When we spoke with Aisling O’Riordan, part of Southern Hospitality Board and one of the organisers of the festival, last year, she explained that Quarter Block Party was originally a quarterly arts day event that happened in the Theatre Development Centre. It was a day-long event and through this, Makeshift Ensemble got funding to produce a festival.

“They came to myself and Caoilian Sherlock,” explained Aisling. “We put on gigs as Southern Hospitality Board, to collaborate and that’s where Quarter Block Party came from.”

They’re back again this year with their usual blend of music, performance and street art.

So far the line up includes Brigid Mae Power, Anna Mieke Bishop and Ena Brennan AKA Dowry performing stripped back shows back to back, Myles Manley, Skinner, Super Silly, Arthur Itis, Pale Rivers, Le Boom, Ganglions, Rowan, Lōwli and more.
