‘It’s been a long and cherished ambition…’: Other Voices to Take Place in Cardigan, Wales

Two-day festival on 1 and 2 November; artists invited to apply to perform on Music Trail.

Following a festival in Belfast in June and then Berlin in July, it has been announced that Other Voices will now take place in Cardigan on the west coast of Wales on 1 and 2 November.

The two-day festival will feature concerts in St Mary’s Church and will be simultaneously broadcast on screens in local venues. There will also be over 30 Music Trail events. The acts for all events will be announced in the coming weeks.

Commenting on the news, Philip King, founder of Other Voices, said:

It’s been a long and cherished ambition of Other Voices to collaborate with our Welsh neighbours with whom we share so much, creatively and culturally. Our shared belief is that our collaboration will be of great benefit and advantage to both Dingle and Cardigan, Ireland and Wales.

Dilwyn Davies, CEO of Theatr Mwldan, an arts and cinema complex in Cardigan, said:

It’s an incredible honour and a moving tribute to the wonderful town of Cardigan to have been chosen as the first ever Other Voices location in Wales. It reinforces the sense of Cardigan’s resurgence as a place where art, culture, creativity and environment form the very foundations of our community.

Local venues are now invited to apply to host Music Trail events and screenings, and artists are invited to apply to perform on the Music Trail. The closing date is 20 August.

For audiences, a one-off registration fee of £5 provides free entry to all Music Trail events. Wristband holders will be also entered into a draw to win tickets to the performances in St Mary’s Church and there will be other competitions online. Follow @OtherVoicesLive for details.
