Mauvey and Poppy Ajudha to headline at Other Voices festival in Cardigan

Other Voices Cardigan has announced two new headline acts for Other Voices Cardigan from November 3 – 5.

After smashing sets at SXSW, The Great Escape and the Isle of Wight Festival earlier this year, alt-pop superstar and creative visionary Mauvey is joining the festival from Canada to play an exclusive set of tracks from his upcoming ‘Before The Album’ EP which drops on November 4.

The festival also promises another huge Other Voices debut from the South-London neo-soul queen Poppy Ajudha. Following the release of her breath-taking debut record ‘The Power In Us’ earlier this year, she’ll be bringing her eloquent genre-fluid blend of jazz, R&B, soul, rock and pop to Cardigan for what’s set to be a dazzling performance from one of the brightest voices on the scene.

Other Voices:

Other Voices started as a one-off music event in a small church in Dingle, a small fishing village in the west of Ireland and over the last 20 years the idea has grown. Other Voices is now an established fixture in the musical calendar – a ‘must attend’ event for performers and audiences alike. Other Voices has led to the creation of an international music TV series and the filming of that series subsequently became a music festival, a tourism event in its own right that celebrates the local on a global scale. In recent years Other Voices has travelled to London, Belfast, New York, Austin, Texas and Berlin.
