Cork Midsummer Festival is a smart, startling, annual festival that takes place in Cork city, Ireland and captivates a growing audience of all ages. Over ten days of world-class performances, special events and entertainment, we endeavour to bring a Festival to people and parts of the city that might be hard to reach. We bring the world to Cork - and show Cork to the world.
Initiated in 1997 and now in its 17th year, the Cork Midsummer Festival will continue its tradition of unusual things in unusual places for June 2013. The festival includes theatre, contemporary and popular music, participatory projects, a family programme, circus, dance, debate, ideas, visual and conceptual art, and more.
