    Elton John, Christy Moore and Bell X1 will be just some of the acts heading for Cork

    Invincible You're so gay!

    I wouldn't mind going to see Alexandra Burke. I love her stuff. It'll be gay central!! And the ticket price isn't too bad.

    Elton John would be cool too but i can't see myself parting with upwards of €70-€80 plus.

    Will definitely be going to Bell x1. I've seen them in both 2007 and 2009 and they've been great each time. I'd like to go to Elton but like Invincible I don't see myself parting with upwards of €80 for a ticket.

    I'd love to see Alexandra Burke too. I'd say it would be more knacker teenage girl central than gay central, or a happy medium of both:p
    Also wouldn't mind seeing Christy Moore but I feel he needs a more intimate venue than the marquee.

    i love them too - often have them on in the car but saw them in 2009 and was very disappointed with them.... it was a friday night and they started with a really slow sets! was a disaster..... wud'nt see them live again.

    Seeing Elton is going to be the realisation of a life long dream for me. I know its expensive but he has been chargin a lot more for tickets lately. I priced him for limerick last year and he was 130 a ticket! And the Marquee is a more intimate venue!

    Saw Alexandra Burke at Milk and she was good!

    They're a great band! 2009 was their tour to support Blue Lights On The Runway. That album is much slower compared to Flock and Music In Mouth. They had to start with the new slower songs. Give them another chance :D

    Meh. No-one fantastic so far.
    Imelda May is the only one I'd like, but I don't know if I like her enough to go see her live.

    Doesn't Christy Moore play there every year? You'd think people would have gotten bored of him by now.

    I saw them in London a few years ago (i was working there at the time). I wouldn't be bothered with them again to be honest!

    Live, they are not too bad. On record can't seem to get into them.
    The Marquee line up is looking much the same as other years, meh.

    I'm so incredibly excited about seeing Elton John in the marquee. I was pretty much raised on his music (along with the Bee Gees) as those were favourites of my Dad so can't wait to finally experience him live!
