“Well-done! It’s so great to see your vision, hard work and learning brought to fruition in a considered and carefully curated programme”
Jon Pearson, Islander Music & Quiet Lights Festival
“It has been great to go from a stage where you were very early in the planning process right up to a finished curated digital festival. Congratulations! Although this type of event is surely not what you had in mind, I am 100% certain that it will make you all more accomplished producers in the future. In the ‘new world’, digital will be at the forefront of every festival, even when crowds can gather again, and I’m sure that this experience will stand to you all.”
Eibhlín Gleeson, CEO Cork Opera House
"The 12 incredible producers from the Out of Orbit Festival have created something really special for audiences. It has been a great joy and privilege to work with these smart, fantastic bunch of female producers over the past few months. Their energy and enthusiasm at this time has been so exciting to observe, they are innovative, ambitious and know their minds. The festival programme really reflects their individual strengths, showcasing work that these producers are really passionate about. These young emerging producers have so much to offer our industry. At a time when the arts are struggling to reach people, this festival has found a way. I am really looking forward to it."
