Bringing It All Back Home
Other Voices presents: Bringing It All Back Home
This Winter we are collapsing distance between the Church of St James here in Dingle and your homes with our weekend of beautifully realised live streams, bringing a piece of West Kerry live and direct to you. Although we wish we could all be together, we know you will all be with us in spirit this year.
All shows will be streamed for free via Other Voices’ YouTube, Twitter + Facebook and RTÉ.ie.
Our digital festival will feature an all-star line up of acts who call Ireland home, bringing us songs for the head and the heart over the course of five nights this December. We'll be announcing more artists in the coming weeks, but in the meantime you can get to know the first wave of acts below with our new Spotify playlist.
Other Voices :: Bringing It All Back Home
Can you support us this year?
While all our live streams will be publicly available for free, we are asking for your continued support in these difficult times.
We would be nothing without all those who have made the pilgrimage to Dingle to be with us over the past two decades. This year we ask for your continued support to help us light up the Church of St James once more. We ask only for support from those who have the means to do so either by buying a digital supporter ticket or donating directly.
This year, Other Voices will be working with the St James Restoration Fund to help restore our spiritual home, the Church of St James. The aim of the fund is to enhance and secure it's use in the 21st century as a shared spiritual cultural space and a valuable community resource. Find out more about the restoration fund here: https://bit.ly/3kKVd2L

The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin, T.D., said: "Cultural events such as Other Voices Dingle continue to be a soothing balm in these challenging times and the importance of this aspect of culture can be seen in the continued and unprecedented government investment in the sector. I am happy to support this event which reminds us that when times are difficult, it is often our artists who offer us hope."
Other Voices founder Philip King said: 'We are absolutely delighted that Other Voices will be going ahead in Dingle again this year, streamed live , from the West of Ireland to the world. This year, the thousands of people who come to Dingle for Other Voices can’t come. The hundreds of thousands of people who normally come back home to Ireland for Christmas can’t come. Thankfully, with the support of Minister Catherine Martin and her Department, our artists and crew are able to be in Dingle to produce an extended Other Voices festival – Bringing It All Back Home – that will be streamed live over five nights. We will collapse distance between the Church of St James here in Dingle, in the Gaeltacht of West Kerry and homes all around the island of Ireland and across the whole wide world. It will be an experience like no other, in a year like no other. You are invited to take the best seat in the house."
Chief Executive at IMRO Victor Finn: said “It’s important this year in particular that we have continued to provide an International stage for emerging Irish artists. Other Voices provides a unique platform for our music to reach all corners of the globe through online and global television outlets”.
Executive Producer at RTÉ Justin Healy said: “This year more than ever supporting Irish artists couldn’t be more important to us, and in Other Voices we have a unique opportunity to bring their work and the magic of Dingle to a worldwide audience. We are delighted to continue to support Other Voices and look forward to bringing this years special series to our audience on multiple platforms.
