50 of Ireland’s most exciting bands will play live in 5 venues across Dublin city on September 29th and 30th for this year’s Hard Working Class Heroes Festival.
Close to 500 bands applied via Breaking Tunes and 50 bands were chosen independently by top Irish and international music industry professionals. The line up features artists from across a diverse range of genres and we are immensely proud of the fact that our line up represents a 50/50 divide of male and female artists, which has been unheard of at any other Irish festival. The live showcase gigs will take place on Friday, September 29th and Saturday, September 30th in The Workman’s Club, The Grand Social, The Tara Building and two of Dublin’s newest venues, Tramline and The Underground.
