Other Voices 2020
St James' Church
This Winter we are collapsing distance between the Church of St James here in Dingle and your homes with our weekend of beautifully realised live streams, bringing a piece of West Kerry live and direct to you. Although we wish we could all be together, we know you will all be with us in spirit this year.
All shows will be streamed for free via Other Voices’ YouTube, Twitter , Facebook and RTÉ.ie.
Our digital festival will feature an all-star line up of acts who call Ireland home, bringing us songs for the head and the heart over the course of five nights this December.
2nd to 6th December 2020

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media
Cultural events such as Other Voices Dingle continue to be a soothing balm in these challenging times and the importance of this aspect of culture can be seen in the continued and unprecedented government investment in the sector. I am happy to support this event which reminds us that when times are difficult, it is often our artists who offer us hope.
Chief Executive IMRO
It’s important this year in particular that we have continued to provide an International stage for emerging Irish artists. Other Voices provides a unique platform for our music to reach all corners of the globe through online and global television outlets.
Other Voices founder
We are absolutely delighted that Other Voices will be going ahead in Dingle again this year, streamed live , from the West of Ireland to the world. This year, the thousands of people who come to Dingle for Other Voices can’t come. The hundreds of thousands of people who normally come back home to Ireland for Christmas can’t come. Thankfully, with the support of Minister Catherine Martin and her Department, our artists and crew are able to be in Dingle to produce an extended Other Voices festival – Bringing It All Back Home – that will be streamed live over five nights. We will collapse distance between the Church of St James here in Dingle, in the Gaeltacht of West Kerry and homes all around the island of Ireland and across the whole wide world. It will be an experience like no other, in a year like no other. You are invited to take the best seat in the house.
Justin Healy, Executive Producer RTÉ
This year more than ever supporting Irish artists couldn’t be more important to us, and in Other Voices we have a unique opportunity to bring their work and the magic of Dingle to a worldwide audience. We are delighted to continue to support Other Voices and look forward to bringing this years special series to our audience on multiple platforms.
Chief Executive of Kerry County Council
Kerry County Council is proud to support and be associated with Other Voices. The event continues to showcase an array of musical and artistic talent and also generates significant international profile for Dingle, Corca Dhuibhne and County Kerry. This year, more than any, has shone on a welcome spotlight on the importance of the arts in our lives and in that context, Other Voices is a critical part of that artistic endeavour and offering.
This live stream event is made possible with the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Kerry County Council, Tourism Ireland,
IMRO, RTE Jones Engineering Group and eir.
