Let’s hope that some music festival organisers in Austin, Texas don’t have a hankering to call their attorneys about the name used by the newest Irish summer festival on the block.

Cork X Southwest is a one-day festival which takes over Skibbereen on Sunday, August 5th and will feature such bands and DJs with Cork accents as The Frank & Walters, Fred, Stanley Super 800, John Spillane and Fish Go Deep.

There will also be a couple of blow-ins on the bill, but CorkXSW organisers plan to keep these to a minimum.
