Other Voices Returns to Electric Picnic 2017!

May 3, 2017

...Expect the unexpected, magical performances from friends old and new, songs and tunes for the head and the heart...

This September, Other Voices will return to the heart of Electric Picnic’s woodland area with an eclectic line up. In keeping with the ethos of Other Voices, festival-goers can expect memorable, intimate, engaging performances from Irish and International artists. Picture a multi-dimensional musical spectrum that will fill you with delight and inspiration. The first few acts are revealed below with more announcements to come over the summer months.

First Line Up Announcement:

Saint Sister | Odetta Hartman | Loah | Charlie Cunningham

Katie Laffan | Soulé | Jafaris

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.

Keep an eye out over the summer for more announcements!
