Dublin calling – city music festival returns

Dublin City Centre music festival, Hard Working Class Heroes, will be back in the city this October 7-9.

Festival organisers are calling on the best of Ireland’s bands to register to apply to play at the eight year of the event. The judging panel is to be made up of writers, A&R and international festival programmers from around the world.

Photographers are also being called on to submit their music related photographs for a chance to feature in an exhibition. The deadline for photographers and bands is July 30.

Hard Working Class Heroes
venues include Andrews Lane Theatre, the Button Factory, the Mercantile, Pravda, Sweeney’s, Twisted Pepper and the Workmans Club.

A limited number of early bird weekend tickets went on sale this morning, priced at €35 plus booking fee compared with the full weekend price of €45. One-night tickets cost €20.

Continuing from last year, free gigs will be run around the city.

“‘HWCH And The City’ proved an amazing success last year with bands and HWCH taking over the city centre in coffee shops, book shops and many more places playing free gigs.  Keep an eye on hwch.net for news on exciting new ways we will be involving you,” said organisers.

The festival will also include panels and mentor sessions with a host of international delegates on hand to share their wisdom and experience.
