For the first time, this year will see the Other Voices event move away from its traditional base in Dingle for two weekenders in Derry and London. The first events for the former have been released, taking place on 8th, 9th and 10th of February as part of the City of Culture 2013 celebrations. So far the line-up includes Marina and The Diamonds, Two Door Cinema Club, Savages, Bronagh Gallagher, Neil Hannon, Damien Dempsey, Soak and Jesca Hoop with more bands to be announced in the coming weeks.
In addition, the festival is taking applications from acts to take part in the Other Voices Music Trail. To enter, go to www.othervoices.ie and follow the link to the IMRO Open Call. Entries must be made by 8pm on the 18th of January 2013.
