Rounding off another year of adventures in Belfast, Berlin and Cardigan, Other Voices returns to its roots in Dingle, Co. Kerry on November 29th, 2019 for the annual weekend in the heart of winter, often referred to as a musical pilgrimage.
Venues, pubs, cafes and shops around the town will open their doors and welcome attendees to the Dingle Gin Music Trail showcasing over 70 artists across three days. Late-night favourite After Dark (a co-production with the Hen’s Teeth) will return to The Hillgrove with very special guests to be announced. The Music Trail West will take festival goers beyond the streets of Dingle to enjoy off the beaten track performances around various locations around the Dingle Peninsula on the Wild Atlantic Way. A longstanding OV favourite, Jim Carroll’s Banter will return to Foxy John’s for two days of thought-provoking discussions and a series of intimate performances.
From Friday 29th of November, Other Voices will welcome Irish and international artists to perform in St. James’ Church and the IMRO Other Room, where they will be filmed for inclusion in the 18th series of the television show, due to air on RTÉ 2 in 2020.
Ireland’s Edge returns with the theme ‘Endings + Edges, Bonds + Borderlands’. The focus will be on Brexit, Ireland’s place in Europe, the climate emergency, mass migration, immigration, and the role and impact of the digital revolution. As ever, the Ireland’s Edge talks and performances will happen in the company of a curious attendance of thinkers, policy makers, innovators, commentators and artists. Join us at the Edge to connect, disrupt and play. Tickets for Ireland’s Edge are priced €35 for two days and €20 for one day and available now from https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/irelands-edge-endings-edges-bonds-borderlands-tickets-73411946107. Ireland’s Edge – Endings + Edges, Bonds + Borderlands is presented in partnership with Intel Ireland.
