The Scandinavians are coming. Irish history may tell us to be wary of any Nordic invasion, but there should be little reason to fear the latest bunch of folk from up north heading here for the Hard Working Class Heroes fest.

Some 14 acts from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland are set to join 90 Irish acts at the event, which takes place at the Pod complex in Dublin from September 28th to 30th.

While Swedish band The Concretes are perhaps the best known of the bunch, On The Record’s tip is fabulous Danish band Oh No Ono. We caught them at the Eurosonic showcase in Holland earlier this year and feel that Silver Apples fans, in particular, will enjoy their avant-garde electronic pop.

Other acts making the trip to Dublin include The LK, Soda Fountain Rag, LoveNinjas and The Tupelo Honeys.
