Together with the amazing crew at University College Cork, we're heading back to Cork for another amazing night of live music. Taking place at 7pm on Thursday 28 September, MayKay will be coming to you live and online with another incredible lineup, plus some exciting new additions to this year’s event.
Ahead of the release of their much-anticipated fourth album, the best-selling pop-rock four-piece Picture This will bring their infectious melodies and chart-topping hits to Cork for one night only, playing an intimate, electrifying live set, before they head off on another huge arena tour.
Two-time Meteor Award winner Wallis Bird will also feature on the brilliant line-up, with the Wexford native having relocated to Berlin to work on her craft over the past decade. In May 2022, the Choice Music Prize nominee released her seventh studio album Hands - her most personal and experimental to date. The project finds Bird turning the spotlight onto herself, raising issues that are sometimes hard to confront.
Gifted singer-songwriter Niamh Regan will return to the OV stage, this time in UCC to play tracks from her critically acclaimed debut ‘Hemet,’ which won universal praise and nominations for both the RTÉ Folk Awards. Niamh will give us a glimpse into her much-anticipated sophomore album as part of what is sure to be another captivating set by the masterful songwriter.
Coming straight outta Ballymun, Bricknasty will hit the OV UCC stage, traversing the worlds of jazz, hip-hop, neo-soul and more for this special show. Their innovative live sets have become the stuff of legends for anyone who has been lucky enough to catch them in the past 12 months. Expect high energy, big grooves and musical anarchism from this one-of-a-kind act.
We’re also shining a light on local talent with a special hometown show from one of Ireland’s most demanding live acts. Hailing from Cork, Cardinals are 6-piece rock n’ roll group containing swells of alternative pop and traditional Irish sounds.
There will also be a soaring Other Voices debut from the fresh new sound of RnB Sekou. At just 18 years old, the rising star has already been tipped by the BBC as an artist to watch with a Glastonbury set under his belt and names Sam Smith, Anderson .Paak, Bruno Mars, Dua Lipa, and Leon Bridges as just some of his many fans.
These singular acts will perform intimate sets both live and online, with all performances being livestreamed to the world via Other Voices’ YouTube›.
