The applications for artists to play Hard Working Class Heroes 2018 music festival have been opened today.
The annual music festival will be looking for acts to play as part of the Hard Working Class Heroes 2018 this September, speaking about the event HWCH Director Angela Dorgan said “With bands securing agents, managers and some label deals as well as a huge jump in national and international profile, a slot at HWCH is something of a bucket list achievement for a lot of developing Irish acts, the payoff is also on view in the record amount of Irish acts on the bill at all our domestic festivals. It has never been more important to showcase Irish talent”.
Bands who have played HWCH in past include Maria Kelly, Saint Sister, Rusangano Family, Villagers, Hozier, Girl Band, Ailbhe Reddy, Delorentos, Soulé, Jape, Coronas, Pleasure Beach, Talos, Le Boom, Otherkin and many more.
