Other Voices 2016 first acts announced

It is getting very close to Other Voices 2016 and the first batch of artists set to take to Dingle this December have just been announced.

In a video posted on new sponsor Eir's facebook page Lisa Hannigan announced Rejjie Snow, Pixie Geldof, Margaret Glaspy, Girl Band as well as herself. These artists are set to play in St. James Church over the weekend. Lisa also treated viewers with the track Snow from her latest No. 1 album At Swim, a taster of what to expect from the festival.

This year’s performances in Dingle have an added event that will be cut together with recordings from Other Voices recent outing in Texas to create one of the most significant music TV shows to come out of Ireland in many years. Some of the artists who took part in Other Voices Texas include Willie Nelson, Mumford and Sons, Conor Oberst, Cage the Elephant, Gregory Porter, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Wild Child and a host of others.

Other Voices 2016 takes place Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th of December, with the TV show hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, DJ Annie Mac and Fight Like Ape’s May Kay.
