Electronic artists Jon Hopkins, New Jackson and Romare are the latest acts to be announced for Cork’s Sounds From A Safe Harbour Festival this September. All three new additions will play at the recently re-opened Dali.
Jon Hopkins is set to take to the stage to DJ on Thursday 12th, Romare on Friday 13th, and New Jackson on Saturday 14th September. The week-long festival, now in its third incarnation, has already announced shows from the likes of Damian Rice, Fiest, Lhasa, Rosie Carney and Grandbrothers to name but a few.
Sounds From A Safe harbour has been running bi-annually since 2015.

In the past, it has hosted performances from the likes of The National, Bon Iver, Fionn Regan, Lisa Hannigan and The Gloaming.
With more acts set to be announced in the coming weeks, this year’s festival already looks to be full of exciting and intriguing acts, none less so than Lhasa, which is a live project originally conceived at 37d03d festival, Berlin, August 2018 which brings artists and musicians together to celebrate the life of Mexican-American musician Lhasa de Sela, who passed away on New Year’s Day 2010 in Montreal.
