The Metropole Hotel, original home of the Cork Jazz Festival, will once again play

host to a top range of diverse artists and music on several stages as the Festival Club extends throughout the October Bank Holiday weekend.

This year, there will also be a number of Jazz Dining Experiences which offer a four-course dinner in the hotel’s Riverview Restaurant accompanied by live music performances and access to the Jazz Festival Club.

Tickets for the 2024 Jazz Festival Club at the Metropole Hotel go on sale this week.

The full schedule will be announced in the Autumn but a number of acts have already been confirmed including the New York Brass Band, Ben Beattie, The Swing Cats, Harry Connolly and the Hugh Buckley trio.

Fans of swing, funk, groove and blues will be well catered for with an exciting mix of Irish and international acts.  Attendees may move from stage to stage to enjoy the special atmosphere and excitement of the Festival Club.  

Always a big welcome for the lively New York Jazz Band.

Sandra Murphy, Group Brand and Communications Manager at Trigon Hotels said; “The Cork Jazz Festival is one of the most exciting weekends here at the Metropole Hotel which has been at the heart of the action since the festival was first established 46 years ago. The range of musical acts ensures there’s something for everyone and our Jazz Dining Experience packages means people can enjoy a specially designed menu using locally sourced ingredients surrounded by the sounds of live music.”

The Metropole Hotel Festival Club is strictly an over 23s venue.  Tickets will be available this Thursday, June 20th on Eventbrite.  Tickets cost €40 per person per night with a range of prices available for the Jazz Dining Experience from €85 per person to €150 per person.
