OTR will be doing a spot of panel-moderating and gig-hosting at the annual Hard Working Class Heroes festival in Dublin next month.

The discussion panels, all on the theme of Welcome to the Future, will take place at the Button Factory (Temple Bar, Dublin 2) on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 October.

The one which may be of most interest to OTR readers is the Futuregazing panel on Saturday afternoon at 3.30pm. We’ve invited a number of interested parties to come along and talk about what they think the music business will look like in 2020. Our futuregazers with the crystal balls are Mumblin’ Deaf Ro, Sean Donegan (IMRO), Ian Wilson (2fm) and Alison Curtis (Today FM).

HWCH is also all about the gigs and there’s an On the Record versus Nialler9 night on Saturday at the Workman’s Club (Wellington Quay, Dublin 2) featuring We Are Losers, Squarehead, Jennifer Evans, Strait Laces, Trophy Boyfriend and The Cast of Cheers.
