Old heroes make a return for HWCH 10


More details on the forthcoming Hard Working Class Heroes festival have been announced, including the day-by-day breakdown on hwch.net. Because 2012 marks the festival’s 10th birthday, there are a number of special events also taking place on October 4th, 5th and 6th, including a series of “Returning Heroes” gigs, featuring some bigger name acts.

Solar Bears, Le Galaxie and Delorentos will play the stage at Dubliin’s Meeting House Square over the three nights, while We Cut Corners and The Ambience Affair will headline The Button Factory on the 5th.

Several “Versus” nights will also take place, where bloggers and DJs curate their own evening of entertainment. The Hype Machine vs Soundcloud will take place on Thursday, our own Jim Carroll’s On the Record’s band selection will go head-to-head with Nialler9’s on Friday, and acts chosen by Paul McLoone (Today FM) will face-off those of ex-2FM DJ Jenny Huston’s choice on Saturday.

The HWCH convention will also run concurrently with the festival and features discussion panels, band-tips and speed sessions with both Irish industry experts and an international delegation that have been shipped in to impart their wisdom, while HWCH and the City is a programme of free daytime gigs in coffee shops, book shops and various venues around Dublin that this year includes the Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship.
