… Expect the unexpected, magical performances from friends old and new, songs and tunes for the head and the heart…

First Line Up Announcement:

Le Galaxie | Karl Blau | Saint Sister | Julia Jacklin
Margaret Glaspy | Jalen N’Gonda | Dr. Dog
And many more to be announced over the coming months!

This September, Other Voices will return to the heart of Electric Picnic’s woodland area with an eclectic line up. In keeping with the ethos of Other Voices, festival-goers can expect memorable, intimate, engaging performances from Irish and International artists. Picture a multi-dimensional musical spectrum that will fill you with delight and inspiration. The first few acts are revealed below with more announcements to come over the summer months.

Le Galaxie will make a triumphant return to Other Voices with songs from their infectious second album Le Club. ‘Atmosfolk’ duo Saint Sister will perform magical, minimalist, delicate tunes and rising folk singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin, who set chins wagging at SXSW and will join us all the way from Sydney. NME described Margaret Glaspy as a musician who is ‘pure American muscle’ - her performance is not to be missed. Karl Blau will offer a taster of modern country music and Jalen N’Gonda will enchant festival goers with his tender soulful voice and bluesy arrangements. Finally, American psychedelic rock band Dr. Dog, will bring their energetic, theatrical show to the Other Voices stage.

Over the last few years musical guests at Other Voices Electric Picnic have included Hozier, Villagers, St. Vincent, Annie Mac, The Staves, Glen Hansard, East India Youth and many, many more.
