Big voices signed for RTÉ show


The eighth instalment of RTÉ’s Other VoicesTV show will kick off in its usual venue, St James’s Church in Dingle, Co Kerry. Dublin- born BBC DJ Annie Mac will host the show, which will be filmed from December 5th to 9th, and screened in the new year.

As always, a host of Irish and international acts will converge on Dingle for the show, and a number of tickets for each night will also go on sale to the public via from Monday, November 23rd. Be quick, though; there are only 60 tickets available per night, and they are limited to two nights per buyer.

Some of the acts already announced to play include Snow Patrol, Richard Hawley, The XX and Australian band The Temper Trap. The Ticketcan confirm that indie favourites The Magic Numbers and rockabilly queen Imelda May will also be performing.

Organisers are keeping mum regarding what acts are playing on what night, but producer Philip King said that it’s the atmosphere that makes Other Voicesso special for musicians and fans alike.

“It’s like bringing everybody back home now,” he said. “It’s a session without parallel that takes place deep in the heart of the beautiful and inspiring west of Ireland.”
