Other Voices will take place in Belfast from June 14 to 16.
Events such as FIFTY, The Given Note and Super Sunday Breakfast Session have been announced for Other Voices this year in Belfast.
FIFTY is a signature Duncairn Castle music and arts event for a scope of different artistic mediums ranging from spoken word to live music, visual art and photography plus whatever else occurs. Maximum capacity for guests sits at 50 and they will be encouraged to partake in the conversation. On June 14, The Other Voices's edition will explore the question of "creativity and how it shapes our future". Musical guests on the night will include folk duo Lemoncello, poet and spoken word artist Colin Hassard and alternative folk musicians Ríoghnach Connolly and Stuart McCallum.
On June 15, The Given Note will indulge in discourse "of how music affects reconciliation, celebrates diversity and tradition and gives a voice to this generation’s concerns regarding identity, isolation and plurality". Live music will complement the discussion and the event will also celebrate Belfast as one of the world’s great musical cities and its special relationship with Nashville.
Last but not least, Super Sunday Big Breakfast Session will take place on June 16. The event will be jam packed with live music, the resident DJ and arts and crafts for kids as well as Sunday brunch. The theme will be "Music, Reconciliation & the Future'.
This is the second time Belfast will host RTÉ's Other Voices after the live music session took place in the city back in 2017.
High-profile acts such as Snow Patrol, The Academic, ROE and Joshua Burnside were announced to play at the event earlier this month.
ˇThis is a coup to end all coups for not only The Duncairn but for this brilliant community and North Belfast. Other Voices have recognised the creative work of the Duncairn as a great music venue and our inclusive programming which promotes all that is great about this wonderful city and its people," says Ray Giffin, Arts and Events Manager of Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts. "We are thrilled to have such amazing line-up here and are more than confident that our work with Philip and all the folks at Other Voices will enhance our profile and North Belfast as a positive example of the power of music and arts to create positive change.”
Tickets for Other Voices will be allocated through media and social media competitions. To find out more, visit their website here.
