Other Voices is one of Ireland’s most unique music events. The annual gathering, which started in Dingle, has evolved since its inception in 2002 to establish itself as a true ‘one of a kind’.  Now stretching along the Atlantic Way from West Kerry North to Derry, Other Voices attracts an expanding array of artists from across the musical spectrum to perform at this intimate musical event which is transmitted worldwide online and as a television series. Past performances have included Ellie Goulding, Amy Winehouse, Elbow, The National, Damien Rice, Snow Patrol, Ryan Adams and many others.

More than 1,000 applications are made each year for a performance slot in the IMRO Other Room.

“IMRO is delighted to be part of this unique and special gathering of songwriting and performing talent. IMRO has a strong reputation as a champion and supporter of new music creation and the IMRO Other Room provides the perfect platform this. Other Voices continues to push musical boundaries and this year it takes a significant step forward with its expansion throughout Dingle, in so doing offering even more exposure for great musical talent”

Victor Finn, IMRO, Chief Executive.

The IMRO Other Room is all about shining a light on exciting, fresh music and in previous years it has offered acts such as James Vincent McMorrow, Villagers and Rusangano Family a platform at Other Voices to showcase their music in the early days of their careers.

In December 2015, for the first time, the IMRO Other Room was filmed in front of a live audience as part of the Other Voices Music Trail. In July 2016 an hour long special on the Other Room aired on RTÉ 2, featuring performances from Saint Sister, Talos, Gavin Glass, Bitch Falcon, HAWK and 2015 Open Call winner Saramai.
