Hard Working Class Heroes


The line-up for the 2011 edition of Hard Working Class Heroes was announced earlier in the week and I must admit the standard of the line up this year is nothing short of staggering.


If you are not sure what HWCH is all about it is basically a showcase festival for independent Irish bands arranged by First Music Contact and Wrong Tape Speed. The festival will take place across multiple venues (including The Workman's Club which opened just a year ago) in Dublin from October 6th to October 8th. Weekend tickets are priced at €45 with early birds ten euro cheaper.

The full list of acts is below but I seriously recommend the below :
