The Church of St James + The IMRO Other Room

There will be  live concerts in the Church of St James as well as a number of performances from the IMRO Other Room. Fontaines D.C., John Grant, Kay Young, Houseplants and Gemma Dunleavy are among the first acts who will make their way to Dingle for Other Voices’ twentieth anniversary celebrations, with many more Irish and International artists to be confirmed.

As always, tickets for televised performances in the Church of St James will not be for sale. These golden tickets will be available to a limited number of competition winners. More on that soon.

All of the performances at the Church of St James and the IMRO Other room will be streamed live to venues throughout Dingle and will also be available to view free of charge on the Other Voices’ YouTube.

You can learn more about Ireland's Edge 2021 programme and speakers here.



Jim Carroll will be back in West Kerry for another edition of Banter at Other Voices. The formula is simple: we take over the back-room of Foxy John’s in downtown Dingle for the weekend, we light the fire and we’re joined by a cast of talkers, makers, activists, do-ers and players for some conversations and music. Stay tuned for the full programme coming soon.

Philip King: “We’re thrilled to welcome live audiences back to Dingle, that uplifting engagement between audience and artists is really at the heart of the live experience. We have some of the most brilliant musicians in the world making the pilgrimage to West Kerry and we have a gathering up of the new voices and artists who have written the emotional soundtrack to the Ireland of 2021. The artists and the crews that make them audible and visible are the heart of the matter and it’s a delight to celebrate their creativity and commitment. It’s going to be great.”

If you can’t be with us in person at this year’s festival - good news! We will once again be collapsing distance and beaming all headline performances from the Church of St James around the globe via YouTube and socials.

We’re so looking forward to seeing you all back in West Kerry this November. Thank you for your patience and support so far. There’s lots of exciting news coming your way very soon, stay tuned pals.

Míle buíochas,

Other Voices

The St James Church Restoration Fund

For twenty years St James’ Church has been Other Voices’ spiritual home. Its doors have welcomed everyone from Amy Winehouse to Young Fathers, St Vincent to The National and beyond, not to mention the hundreds of you who have been lucky enough to have ‘The Church’ experience. It’s been home to so many magic moments and after two decades the building is in need of care and we would ask you to consider donating to The St James' Church Restoration Fund to help keep this historic space lit up for another two decades.You can donate here.
