Hard Working Class Heroes Call For Musician and Band Applications


Arguably the country’s leading celebration of homegrown, independent music, Hard Working Class Heroes will return to Dublin from October 6-8.

With the likes of Hare Squead, Saint Sister and Rusangano Family standing out last year, the festival have made its annual call to the country’s musicians, bands and singer-songwriters to apply to play this year’s showcase.  You can apply via HWCH’s Breaking Tunes site; simply go here and click the ‘BANDS APPLY HERE’ button. The closing date for applications is July 22.

Early bird tickets to Hard Working Class Heroes 2016 are priced at €35 via DICE until August 10, after which tickets will cost €45.00 (Weekend tickets) and €20 (Nightly tickets). No booking fees apply.
