Other Voices returns to RTÉ 2 this Saturday 30th of July at 11.05PM with performances from the Other Voices Stage at Ireland's biggest music festival, Electric Picnic.
The hour long special, presented by MayKay, will include performances from Glen Hansard, Booka Brass Band, Otherkin, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Ham Sandwich and many more. Expect invigorating, one-off performances from the intimate settings of the Other Voices Stage in the woods at Electric Picnic.
Other Voices will return to Electric Picnic this September.
Other Voices (www.othervoices.ie) started as a one-off music event in a small Dingle church and over the last 14 years the idea has grown. Other Voices is now an established fixture in the musical calendar - a 'must attend' event for performers and audiences alike. Other Voices has led to the creation of an international music TV series and the filming of that series subsequently became a music festival, a tourism event in its own right that celebrates the local on a global scale. While the stellar quality of the music at Other Voices continues to reach ever higher levels, Other Voices is a constantly evolving and innovating force in the world of music events and cultural tourism, constantly exploring and experimenting multi-dimensionally across content programming, event formats and distribution channels.
In 2012/13 Other Voices hosted a tripartite event that linked Dingle to Derry-Londonderry as a headline event in the UK Capital of Culture programme before finishing the tri-cycle in London in a very successful outreach partnership with The Barbican into London's East End. The event was bi-located in Dingle and Derry~Londonderry again in 2013/14. In July 2015, Other Voices travelled to Suffolk for Latitude Festival. The line up included Ed Sheeran, Nathaniel Rateliff, East India Youth, All Tvvins, Young Fathers, The Unthanks, Jape, Le Galaxie, Booka Brass Band and many more. In September 2015 Other Voices returned to Electric Picnic for a second year in a row with performances from The Staves, Villagers, Glen Hansard, Gavin James and many, many more.
