Other Voices is returning to the culturally vibrant city of Belfast. This edition will run over three days, showcasing an array of fantastic musical and cultural events.
Since its first visit to Belfast in 2017, Other Voices has expanded exponentially, bringing its unique format of music, conversation and everything in between to increasingly larger audiences both at home and abroad. While awareness of the acclaimed music television series and arts festival has grown, its central message has not been diluted. At its core, Other Voices seeks to celebrate live music in all its forms as well as providing a platform for open, compelling dialogues about art, culture, technology and commerce, exploring the ways in which they intersect.
Once again, Other Voices will be collaborating with the Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts and 174 Trust to bring this dynamic event to Belfast with the support and investment of Belfast City Council, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and RTÉ.
“To say that we are over the moon to have Other Voices returning to The Duncairn and our wonderful city is the understatement of the year. Central to the shared vision and delivery of both organisations is a love for music and the recognition of its power to inspire, unite and lift the spirits of people. We are extremely proud of our fantastic musical heritage, and having events such as Other Voices, only enhances the reputation of a creative, dynamic and modern Belfast.”
– Ray Griffin Arts and Events Manager Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts.
“Music influences so much of our culture here in Belfast. As part of our draft Cultural Strategy we’ve outlined our ambitions to secure UNESCO City of Music status by 2021, and attracting events like Other Voices is a fantastic way of celebrating music and our musical heritage. It’s great to have Other Voices back at the Duncairn Centre again this summer and I hope it will inspire creativity and influence other exciting cultural activities right ac
“We are delighted to bring Other Voices back to Belfast, one of the worlds great musical cities. We are honoured to work again with our friends at The Duncairn in north Belfast to use the power of music, creativity and ideas to bring people together and to guide us all towards a better future. The event is made possible by the support of Belfast City Council, The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Reconciliation Fund) and RTE ”
