The Live at the Marquee gig series kicks off this coming Friday, June 9th, with the next two months seeing a plethora of both local and world-class acts visiting the banks of the lovely Lee in Cork to ply their wares.

From Elton John to Picture This, from Emeli Sandé to Elbow, from Frankie Valli to Bryan Adams and from Christy Moore to Cliff Richard and beyond, there really is something for everyone on this year's bill.

It also makes for an extraordinarily diverse playlist – but sure, there's no better way to dip your toe into Live at the Marquee 2017 than to indulge in a little advance listening.

See below for a reminder of who's playing when (and full support act details), and then get clicking 'Play' to get you in the mood...
