Large Capacity Venue to be Unveiled in Cork this September

Cork Docklands will finally have a venue for large events, gigs, shows etc. and it arrives in an unlikely package....

The ARC Event Centre, to be erected and ready for September, will have a seating capacity of 5,000 and will cover 40,000 square feet.

At first glance the ARC looks like a cross between an aeroplane hangar and a fancy large tent but rather than knock the announcement I will keep my ears open for the first announcements and only judge after I have attended a show or two. In saying that it will be very interesting to see what kind of acts/events will be booked. Safe money is on large functions (See Bodies ) and safe pop acts such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga etc.

Fingers crossed the likes of Arcade Fire may slip into this bracket every now and then....

EDIT Events already announced include Cork Homes & Toys 4 Big Boys. :(


  1. Who would you like to see play the new arena/tent/hangar/ARC?
