Other Voices Returns To Dingle This December

Updated: Nov 10, 2022

Other Voices Festival returns to its homeland of Dingle from December 2nd - 4th 2022. This magical three-day festival creates an incredible atmosphere both in St James’ Church and throughout the town of Dingle. But before they hit the road to Dingle they're venturing to beautiful West Wales for Other Voices Cardigan 2022 with Poppy Ajudha, Gwenno, Stella Donnelly and more. Finally, to round off a jam-packed year, they will once again be joining forces with the amazing team at the Home of Guinness for a special night of songs and stories from the Guinness Storehouse this December - watch this space for full details in the coming weeks!

As the current golden era of Irish music shows no signs of slowing down, they’re delighted to announce that the first four artists who will take to the stage in The Church of St James this December will all be homegrown talent, blazing trails in their respective genres, with many more Irish and international artists to be announced in the coming weeks.

Gilla Band quickly gained a huge following with their post-punk noise-rock, heavy techno drum beats, and wailing vocals from frontman Dara Kiely. Their ferocious live shows have been described as chaotic and electrifying. Gilla Band are not just a band, but a force! Their new album ‘Most Normal’ produced by the band, is out now.

Indie-pop singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson will no doubt light up St James’ Church with her captivating signature sound. Following her highly anticipated second album, ‘Smiling Like An Idiot’ which garnered wide critical praise, Richardson is guaranteed to be a highlight of the weekend.

When it comes to traditional and contemporary folk, John Francis Flynn has mastered his craft. Having received numerous accolades for his incredibly moving and extraordinary debut album ‘I Would Not Live Always’, this multi-instrumentalist is guaranteed to deliver one powerful performance.

Gemma Dunleavy may have captured your attention with her stunning debut EP ‘Up De Flats’. Dunleavy takes influence from traditional storytelling whilst celebrating her community of Dublin’s Sheriff S. Her sound has developed by experimenting with instruments connected to her heritage and amalgamated this with her love of pop and club music.

Ireland’s Edge - The Good Life / Slí Bheatha takes place in the Dingle Skellig Hotel on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd of December. Now in its eighth year, this two-day event brings together a compelling range of voices to explore how change has been and is being wrought in the world today. Expect illuminating and uplifting discussions, ideas, stories + performances. Tickets are available now through Eventbrite.

Dingle Gin Music Trail tickets are on sale now via Eventbrite. Keep your peepers peeled as they’ll reveal the second round of acts in early November. Don’t miss your chance to catch 80+ live sets throughout 16 venues. Weekend wristbands are priced at €75 plus booking fee.
