The festival also announced the first part of the line-up, with musical groups Soak and Whenyoung set to appear. Also scheduled to attend are performers Stella Donnelly, Dowry and Gwenno,
Those attending the festival have been asked to anticipate incredible performance from "friends old and new" and that the 'Other Voices' stage will include a "multi-dimensional musical spectrum that will fill you with delight and inspiration".
Commenting on this years lineup,the event organizers are thrilled to be welcoming such a wide and diverse range of artists. SOAK has been described by The Guardian as one of the "most fascinating artists to emerge from Northern Ireland in recent years", due to her "vivid portrait of teenage deep-thinking"
Welsh singer Gwenno will be making her debut performance on the Other Voices stage performing songs from her most recent album 'Le Kov (The Place of Memory)'.
Australian native Stella Donnolly has been pegged as a real treat due to her brutal yet witty use of the English language offers an honest insight into relationships. Her emotional lyrics depict the reality of living as a woman in a Trump and Tinder infested world.
Audiences can also expect powerhouse performances from Limerick-natives Whenyoung; as well as solo artist Dowry, an up and coming singer who has been noted as the one to watch by The Thin Air and State.ie
Other Voices has become an established musical event since its conception in a small church in Dingle. The event has built a reputation for delivering high-quality performances and challenging artists to constantly evolve and innovate the world of music. It has seen a large boost for tourism where the mix of culture can be enjoyed on a global scale.
