From next Friday to Sunday, around 100 acts will be taking part in this year’s Hard Working Class Heroes festival in a bunch of Dublin city-centre venues. There are dozens and dozens of new and semi-established Irish acts playing, plus a couple of highly regarded Scottish acts inciuding Frightened Rabbit, Sons & Daughters and We Were Promised Jetpacks.

In a spirit of generosity not seen since Kilkenny allowed Waterford to knock over a few aul’ points last Sunday to take the dirty look off the scoreboard, On The Record has a pair of weekend passes to give away.

To win, simply tell us why you are a hard working class hero. Some of you will have to use your imagination for this. And keep it clean. This is supposed to be a family-friendly blog.

Usual rules apply – yes, even employees of Bud Rising can enter – and the competition stays open until noon tomorow to give those who only get around to reading the blog in the evenings a chance to enter.

While you’re coming up with a suitably witty answer, here’s a video of New Amusement who are playing on Sunday at 7.45pm in Meeting House Square. (By the way, full schedule for the weekend is here)
