It's not long now until eir Other Voices 2017 kicks off...
Join us in Dingle 1st - 3rd of December for a weekend of magic, with songs for the head and heart. The eir Other Voices Festival, 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. All the information you need to join us is listed below.
St. James' Church
Space in St. James' Church is extremely limited and is accessible to competition winners only. Ever year, we run a number of competitions for tickets into St. James' Church. We'll update you here on the Other Voices website, but to be the first to know, keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
Please note that tickets for other events across the weekend, such as the Music Trail and Other Voices After Dark will not gain you access to St. James' Church.
If you can't get into St. James' Church, don't worry! We will be live streaming eir Other Voices in several pubs across Dingle, so you can see every performance, in full, as it happens.
The Music Trail
The Music Trail in association with Heineken, is a great way to see rising Irish talent. This year we have another excellent mix of singer-songwriters, bands and DJs keeping you entertained from the early afternoon and on into the night. These events are completely free and will take place in venues around Dingle town. Register via EventBrite page here:
Gigs in the following venues on the Music Trail will only be accessible by those who have registered and collected their wristband. These wristbands are not tickets to St James Church, they are wristbands for select The Music Trail venues:
- An Diseart
- An Chonair
- Nellie Freds
Registration on Eventbrite is free. Please remember - registration on eventbrite does not guarantee access. Capacity is limited across all venues, so entry on the night will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Tickets can be exchanged for wristbands in the The Hub. More information about ticket exchange and event access will be sent out in the coming weeks.
eir Other Voices are delighted to be teaming up with This Greedy Pig and Heineken to bring you 'After Dark', a party that kicks on in to the wee small hours after things wrap in the church. We'll be bringing you a line up of some of our favourite selectors, with a very special guest announcement in the coming days. This will be a party like no other, so spread the good word. Our first batch of tickets for this event have already sold out, but due to exceptional demand we have released a second run of tickets. Tickets cost €11.16 including booking fee and can be purchased via the Eventbrite page below:
Ireland's Edge: Migration Nation
Taking place in the Skellig Hotel in Dingle, Ireland’s Edge 2017- Migration Nation is a two day conference bringing together high-level influencers and thinkers from a range of sectors including members of the diaspora community, FDI companies, artists, academics, commentators and policy makers. Running alongside eirOther Voies, Ireland's Edge 2017 will provide a platform for debate, discussion and ideas, exploring the role of the Irish diaspora, what it means to be Irish abroad, and how we might harness this immense resource, a collective knowledge and experience that is widely dispersed throughout the world.
Places will be limited at the Conference so please register on the Eventbrite page below to avoid disappointment:
