There was a tremendously positive response to the Other Voices Festival in Ballina in 2018 and it is conservatively estimated that the economic benefit to the region was in excess of two million addition to an extensive media reach.
Other Voices has been going strong in Dingle for seventeen years, which has led to the creation of an acclaimed Music TV series with over fifteen international broadcast partners. Other Voices Mayo will also feature in the next broadcast series on RTE later this year.
