Join us in the Stradbally woods this September, where we will be showcasing some of the most vibrant, exciting artists and home grown talent. Fresh from a European tour with Lisa Hannigan, Saint Sister will make a triumphant return to the Other Voices stage with beautiful, mesmerising ‘atmos-folk’. We will be joined by Choice Prize ‘Song of the Year’ nominee Soulé, who will treat us to some of her bass heavy, UK inspired music and soulful vocals.
Bringing a bit of NYC East Village flavour to the big picnic, Odetta Hartman will “carry cowboy soul into an era where country can clash with computers, and bluegrass isn't afraid of bass”.
Londoner Charlie Cunningham will enchant audiences with flamenco and Iberian inspired guitars and a voice to soothe even the most fragile heads. Dublin based hip-hop artist Jafaris is known for his memorable live performances and trust us when we say this one is not to be missed. Irish Sierra Leonean singer Loah will perform music from her stunning debut EP ‘This Heart’ and Dubliner Katie Laffan will take to the Other Voices stage for the first time.
Rising Cork musician Talos, showcases songs from his acclaimed debut album Wild Alee. Irish music veteran David Kitt brings his inventive electronic project New Jackson to the Other Voices stage, while grunge-rock trio Bitch Falcon guarantee big riffs and powerhouse vocals.
British electropop artist PIXX makes her Other Voices debut as well as hotly tipped R&B quartet Supersilly. Beautiful harmonies and sharp hooks can be expected from Wyvern Lingo and poet Stephen James Smith returns to Other Voices with thought provoking words and distinct Dublin humour. Berlin singer-songwriter Tom Adams joins us for his first Irish performance not to be missed.
Striking lyrics and well-crafted tunes can be expected from Jack O’Rourke with special guest Hattie Webb - a harpist described by Leonard Cohen as “flawless, uplifting and utterly original”. Ailbhe Reddy and Jealous Of The Birds provide poignant songs with infectious melodies, while post-punk quartet Slow Riot revel in angular arrangements with stadium sized hooks.
Rising punk-pop band Pillow Queens will show us why they’re the sharpest new band in Dublin, while the infectious Booka Brass kick us off in style on Friday afternoon.
