The Staves, East India Youth and Stornoway are among the first tranche of acts announced for the Other Voices stage at this year’s Electric Picnic.

Last year saw the Other Voices stage find a home in the Stradbally woodlands, with a lineup that included Hozier, St Vincent, Annie Mac and Little Green Cars. Last week it also pitched up at Latitude in the UK, and managed to get Ed Sheeran to perform with Snow Patrol. 

Other acts on the bill for September at Other Voices include Heartless Bastards, Cristobal & The Sea, Ala.ni, Gavin James and Ham Sandwich.

The main Other Voices festival takes place in Dingle each winter, with performances over three days in St James’s Church. Among those who have performed at Other Voices are Ellie Goulding, Amy Winehouse, Elbow, The National, Snow Patrol and Ryan Adams.

Other acts will be added to the bill in the coming weeks, and Other Voices has a habit of pulling in surprise guests on the day. Among those performing at Electric Picnic who have also made the trip to Dingle in previous years are Florence and the Machine, Villagers and Wyvern Lingo.

Electric Picnic takes place in Stradbally, Co Laois, from September 4th to 6th
