VAN MORRISON – Friday 31st May 2024 

Van Morrison is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, author, poet and multi-instrumentalist, who is widely considered one of the most influential artists in the history of music. He has multiple albums that are ranked as the greatest in the entire rock and roll canon.Van Morrison has journeyed far and wide since his early days, however performing here is always a spectacle to behold. His live performances are always music making at the highest pinnacle of musicianship, and his songcraft is of the highest level of any living performer today. ‘One of the great singers in all of music, he remains at the absolute peak of his vocal powers. It is compelling, emotive and feels effortless as he stands still delivering vocals that feel like they can reach the heavens. On this night, he and his band soared to the highest reaches yet again. But that is nothing new for one of rock’s true greats.’ Steve Baltin – LA show 2023.

DAMIEN DEMPSEY – Saturday 8th June 2024 ~ joined by Special Guests Hermitage Green 

Damien Dempsey is a passionate singer and songwriter – a rare gem of an artist. An ex-boxer with the soul of a poet. The beautifully shot documentary ‘Love Yourself Today’, released in 2021, follows a number of individuals who have been strongly influenced by Damien and unearths their stories of overcoming pain and finding solace in his music. The film successfully explains the Dublin singer- songwriter’s appeal by focusing on what his songs mean to fans. 2023 saw Dempsey’s 20-night residency at the Abbey Theatre, with his hugely successful debut show, Tales from the Holywell. The Conor Pearson-directed production was followed by a 14-date Irish tour and a support slot for The Saw   Doctors at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl. 2023 has also seen the first new music from Damien since  2018’s sublime Union album. Hope Calling is the first single from his as yet untitled 2024 new album and is released via Sony Ireland.

LYRA – Sunday 16th June 2024

LYRA is one of the most striking talents to have emerged from Ireland in the past few years. Hailing from County Cork, she’s established herself on both the domestic and international stage with a string of exciting, vibrant singles accompanied by a unique style of visual presentation that is never less than stunning. The last year has been particularly thrilling for LYRA, with the spectacular success of her one-two punch of hit singles: the ultra-catchy ‘Lose My Mind’ and the uplifting, dancefloor collab with John Gibbons on Stevie Nicks’ classic ‘Edge Of Seventeen’. In addition to these big tunes, she’s released successful collaborations with dance artist UNSECRET and Bill Whelan on ‘Riverdance: The Animated Adventure.’ She also soundtracked An Post’s Irish festive campaign with her track ‘The Magic Of Christmas’.

SUGABABES – Thursday 23rd May 2024

Sugababes became one of the most successful British girlbands of the 21st century with six Number One singles, millions of global sales and multiple multi-platinum albums. Along the way they told one of the most spectacular stories of the modern pop era, but it all started with one song, three voices and a mysterious white label 7”. Fast forward two decades, the original line up of Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy arrived back in full force becoming the talk of the summer festivals including having to shut down their field at Glastonbury due to demand. The next chapter for Sugababes is just getting started!

THE CORONAS – Friday 24th May 2024

Initially an indie success story, The Coronas have been building their fan base for over a decade,  becoming one of Irelands most loved and respected live acts in the process.
Last year, they released  ‘Time Stopped’, which went straight to number 1 in the album charts, becoming the first and only independent Irish act in history to score 3 consecutive number 1 albums. “The Marquee is a special  venue in the story of The Coronas”, says lead singer Danny O’Reilly. “There’s magic in Cork and in that tent in particular that is impossible to match anywhere else.”

“We can’t wait to come back”

GAVIN JAMES – Saturday 25th May 2024 ~ joined by Lea Heart & Man Alive 

Few singer-songwriters are so able to capture the stuff of our intimate lives – love, heartache, loss, joy – like Gavin James. Honing his performing and song writing gifts as a busker and pub performer in Dublin, since being championed by the likes of Ed Sheeran and the release of his early records (including debut studio album, 2016’s Bitter Pill) James has built a community of fans that have seen his music streamed three billion times across the globe and earn diamond and platinum records in multiple countries. He has also sold more than 250 000 tickets (and counting) worldwide with a live show that is as transporting as it is uplifting. This Autumn, James returned with a new single, “White Noise” that sees him expanding his creativity (his vocal is in a deeper signature, adding a magnetic resonance to the lyrics) and is a precursor to a new album of original material that he’s recording in a studio on a mountain outside his home city of Dublin.
