Heading to Other Voices? Here's everything that you need to know
Who said festival season was over?
The Wild Atlantic Way is set to become a winter wonderland for music lovers this weekend as Other Voices takes charge.
Now in its 16th year, the acclaimed RTÉ TV series has evolved into its own unique unmissable calendar event. A host of top local and international talent descending on the picturesque town of Dingle for over 70 gigs and talks, and it's all completely free.
Here's everything you need to know...
Other Voices takes place in Dingle, County Kerry, with leading lights taking up space in the hallowed halls of St. James' Church. There's also a dedicated Music Trail to explore as acts post up in several warm, intimate venues to make some noise.
This coming weekend; Friday 1 December - Sunday 3 December.
It's a typically strong line-up for the three-day bash with Perfume Genius, Wyvern Lingo, Django Django, Dermot Kennedy, Aine Cahill, Lankum and Loyle Carner among the headline attractions, while the Music Trail plays host to rising Irish talent like Bitch Falcon, Mango and Mathman, Laoise, Other Creatures, and Cinema to name but a few.
