The festival line-up is due to be announced throughout July and will feature a broad palette of talkers, thinkers and doers, covering everything from fact and fiction, stories and tales, sports to comedy, and beyond.

Joe Kelly of The Good Room said:

"Having watched the evolution of Podcasting from a small and unique listenership to the huge fanbase now, we felt that the time was right host a weekend of Podcasting in Cork. Some of the acts that we have been dealing with over the years have created audio content with huge success. It is great to team up with Cork Opera House and other top venues to present this new festival in Cork."
