Grizzly Bear & Midlake to play Cork!
There's been a bit of a buzz doing the rounds about this for about a week or so now. Grizzly Bear were rumoured to be playing a "secret" gig in Ireland, initially thought to be in Dublin, but then confirmed to be outside the capital. We were promised an announcement today, and it has more than delivered on the excitement that's been building!
For the inaugural Harmonic event (Harmonic was put together by Aiken Promotions and independent promoter Leagues O'Toole, with a view to forming a mass gathering of independent music lovers in Cork City.) live at the Marquee, the people of Cork are going to be treated to FOUR great acts on the one bill - Grizzly Bear, Midlake, Camera Obscura and Villagers.
I, for one, am very excited about this. It's all too rare that Cork is treated to acts of such quality, let alone all in one go - AND for a paltry €35!
Here's hoping that it is a success and that we can look forward to it becoming a summer tradition in Cork!
Tickets go on sale this Friday (March 19th) and are available from ticketmaster outlets countrywide.
