Cork Jazz Festival
Guinness Cork Jazz Festival 2019
The Guinness Cork Jazz Festival is one of the most anticipated events in the Irish festival calendar and recognised as a significant Jazz event on the world music stage since 1978.
Every year, crowds of people flock to the city of Cork to experience this annual event. Over the years it has played host to some of the most famous jazz musicians such as Ella Fitzgerald, Cleo Laine, Sonny Rollins and Oscar Peterson.
During the day, soak up the atmosphere as you wander through the city to the beat of the street musicians who have descended on Cork from every corner of the world.
At night, prepare to face the tough decision of which performance to enjoy. From traditional to offbeat, Guinness Cork Jazz Festival has it all.
