The anthemic ELBOW, the formidable four-piece SKINNY LIVING, spoken word artist and rapper DENISE CHAILA and last but not least, from California, the exceptionally talented singer-songwriter and guitarist JESCA HOOP have just been confirmed as the first four acts to perform in St. Michael’s Church Ballina at the end of February for the second Other Voices Ballina festival.
The event organisers say even more superb acts will be announced in the coming weeks including details of the Other Voices Music Trail and are promising one very special and memorable weekend in Ballina on February 28 and 29 next.
Other Voices Ballina presents a unique and special opportunity for music lovers to witness unforgettable performances from stellar international artists playing in an intimate church setting.
The essence of Other Voices is about stripping it back to the musician and the audience which creates an amazing experience for both the performer and the listener and that’s where the heart of the festival lies.
Tickets for the St. Michael’s Church TV recording performances cannot be purchased and will be given away through competitions in national and local radio, press and online. All ticket competitions will be announced in advance at www.othervoices.ie
While getting your hands on a ticket for the Other Voices TV recordings can be like finding a Golden Ticket, Other Voices Ballina festival-goers won’t miss a beat from the Church, as the Other Voices Live Streaming in partnership with Virgin Media sets up throughout the town.
Music fans can enjoy all the happenings in St. Michael’s Church, at multiple locations throughout Ballina. With huge screens, high definition audio-visual and close proximity to a freshly poured pint, screening venues will be a massive hit during the Festival.
Beyond St Michael’s Church, the Other Voices Ballina Music Trail will feature more than 30 free gigs taking place in various venues across Ballina over the Other Voices Festival Weekend. The trail will feature an exciting and diverse line-up of performers, musicians, DJs and bands.
A brand new rolling submission policy for musicians who are interested in performing at Other Voices events throughout the year has just been launched.
