Sounds from a Safe Harbour (SFSH) is a biennial festival of music, dance, art, and conversation, curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner of The National, actor Cillian Murphy, playwright Enda Walsh, and Mary Hickson (Director of 37d03d).
With a particular focus on new works, collaborations, and shared experiences, we invite you to explore our exciting programme of ticketed and free events, taking place in intimate venues across Cork City.

“Inspiring… reimagine a festival experience”
– Nialler 9

“A superb festival”
– Irish Examiner

“Redefining what is means to throw a festival… they’ve sculptured an event that’s both creatively unique and satisfyingly unpredictable.”
– Loud and Quiet 

A festival like this can only happen in a city like this.
