Other Voices is a unique event, often referred to as a 'musical pilgrimage', where audiences and performers alike flock to the beautiful town of Dingle in the depths of winter. We are delighted to announce that Other Voices will return to Dingle 30th November - 2nd of December for a weekend of magic, with songs for the head and heart.
This year, we are introducing a registration charge of €30. By registering for Other Voices, you will be ensuring that Other Voices returns to Dingle for another year of magic. This December, over 100 gigs and talks will take place over three days in Dingle. While we have some sponsors and we are very grateful to those, it only part-funds the weekend. The registration fee will go towards ensuring we run an event that meets the highest standards for all attendees.
