Ireland may not have a new band festival of the size or stature of Austin’s colossal South By Southwest or Groningen’s excellent Eurosonic, but it does have Hard Working Class Heroes.

The festival is now in its fifth year and will run from September 28th to 30th at Dublin’s Pod complex.

Bands who wish to play the festival should apply online before July 19th. More than 700 bands applied in 2006 so competition for the 100 slots is tough. At least, they won’t have to contend with Simon Cowell or Louis Walsh as judges.
