Following on from the phenomenal success of Other Voices’ live streamed series ‘Courage’ which took place during 2020 (amassing a total of 2.5 million views, with a reach of 9 million worldwide), Other Voices will be brought all the way back home to Dingle this year, streaming the whole thing live to Ireland and the world as it happens. It will be a festival like no other.
“The circumstance of this year has brought us back to our roots and Other are asking you all to be with us from your own homes, enjoying everything we’ve got in store for you while staying safe, and well.
We are collapsing distance between the church of St James here in Dingle and your homes with our weekend of beautifully realised live streams, bringing a piece of West Kerry directly to you.“
Other Voices are delighted to announce that the first round of fantastic Irish based acts will include: For Those I Love – the project of multi-instrumentalist and producer David Balfe, singer-songwriter Niamh Regan, up and coming alt pop singer Luz, rapper Nealo, GRAMMY nominated folk artist Rhiannon Giddens and musical partner Francesco Turrisi, American composer and musician Peter Broderick and indie rock four piece Pillow Queens.
This live stream event is made possible with the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Kerry County Council, Tourism Ireland, IMRO, RTE Jones Engineering Group and eir.
Chief Executive at IMRO Victor Finn: said “It’s important this year in particular that we have continued to provide an International stage for emerging Irish artists. Other Voices provides a unique platform for our music to reach all corners of the globe through online and global television outlets.”
