Saturday week will see Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Martha Wainwright and more take to the stage in Skibbereen, Cork for the fifth annual Cork X Southwest festival.
The festival, as always, is an all-tent affair so even if the Sun cannot afford a ticket (recession and all that), music-lovers will be safe from the elements.
The line-up is as follows :
The Blue Tent
Bonnie "Prince" Billy & The Cairo Gang
The Frank and Walters
Neon Flea Circus
The Little Big Tent
Future Trad Collective
Suckitt & C
The Social Services
Returning for the third year running is the very popular De Barra's Sitting Room with a far more laid back line-up :
The Handsome Family
The Ambiance Affair
Dead Cat Bounce
The Realt Dearg tent will also showcase some local djs so is definitely worth checking out.
Tickets are €55 and available from www.tickets.ie and Plug'd Records Tickets (021 4276300) on Washington Street, Cork
