​Filmed in front of a live audience, the IMRO Other Room is all about shining a light on fresh, exciting music from Ireland.

In previous years, the IMRO Other Room has given television debuts to acts such as James Vincent McMorrow, Villagers and Lisa O'Neill. The Open Call is your opportunity to apply to be part of the IMRO Other Room and have your performance included in the Other Voices TV series, which will air on RTE 2 in 2019. 

Last year the Open Call recieved over 1,000 entries and Maria Kelly was announced as the Listener's Choice on RTE 2FM.
