Hard Working Class Heroes returns to the streets of Dublin over the weekend of Thursday 7/ Friday 8 / Saturday 9 October for its 8th consecutive year.
Taking place in Dublin City Centre the festival is now once again calling on the best of Ireland’s bands to register to secure a slot to play at the event. Applications will be through FMC’s own “Breaking Tunes” site (log on to www.hwch.net and click on the “BANDS APPLY HERE” button). Closing date for applications is July 30. The judging panel for applications will be made up of writers, A&R and music industry people from around the globe as well as international festival programmers.
Once again, Ireland’s photographers are being called on to submit their finest music related shots for a chance to feature in a HWCH Photographers Exhibition. Photographers’ applications will also be via www.hwch.net – simply click on the “PHOTOGRAPHERS APPLY HERE” button and follow the instructions. This year’s call for photographers will add the renowned photographer Glen E. Friedman to the judging panel.
And keeping up its high standard of additional events and activities there will be HWCH panels, mentor sessions and more with a host of international delegates on hand to share their wisdom and experience (thanks to the generous support of The Arts Council, Culture Ireland and IMRO). As always Hard Working Class Heroes promises a spectacular collection of music and fun for the whole weekend.
