George Ezra kicks off an exciting six night run of concerts at Cork's Irish Independent Park on Thursday followed by Walking on Cars on Friday, The Coronas and Sigrid on Saturday, the legendary Liam Gallagher on Sunday, Hozier on Tuesday and Ms Lauryn Hill on Wednesday.

Here's everything you need to know...

Are there tickets available?

Yes and no.  George Ezra, Walking on Cars, and Hozier have, unsurprisingly, sold out.  However, there are very limited tickets remaining for The Coronas, Liam Gallagher, and Lauryn Hill from Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster will have box offices located at the Gate C entrance and that's where you can pick up guestlist tickets too (lucky you).

For tickets labelled Gate B, enter via Tramore Road, and tickets labelled Gate C enter via Pearse Road.

Travel: How to get to Irish Independent Park?

Fans are encouraged to walk or take public transport as there will be no parking facilities available locally.  Towing will be in operation to tackle illegal parking.

Car Parking is available in the City Centre. Further information can be found here: https://www.corkcity.ie/en/council-services/services/parking-services/where-to-park/multi-storey-car-parks.html

Taxi Drop-Off will be designated at Curragh Road before and after the event.
