Electronic music pioneers Kratfwerk and soul sensations Chic feat Nile Rodgers join singer-songwriters Jack Johnson and Gavin James as the latest acts to the Live at the Marquee concert series.

The foursome brings the total number of gigs to 20 for next summer's event with just one more announcement expected. 

It is understood that will take the form of a second Kodaline show after the band reported very strong sales for the first show, which went on sale yesterday morning.

Gavin James will make his return to the marquee on June 16, continuing his meteoric rise over the last two years which has included chart-topping singles and sold-out tours on four continents.

He will be followed by Chic feat Nile Rodgers on June 17. Considered one of the best live bands in the world, Chic have been a big hit on their previous appearances in Cork and will no doubt do the same again this time.

Jack Johnson will take to the stage on July 2. His Cork appearance will be his only Irish show of 2018 and is his first gig in Ireland in 12 years.

Finally, Kraftwerk will bring their stunning 3-D show to the Marquee on July 11 in another exclusive show.

Tickets for Kraftwerk and Jack Johnson will go on sale on Thursday, February 8, with Gavin James and Chic set to follow on Friday, February 9.
