HWCH ’14 special guests announced
The special guests (or honourary “Heroes”) of Hard Working Class Heroes 2014 have been announced.

The organisers of the annual festival of hotly-tipped homegrown music have also announced details of HWCH and the City – a music trail of free, all ages gigs in some of Dublin’s best and most unique shops, restaurants and coffee shops. Go here to see full details with venues and times (tickets are free).
