Hard Working Class Heroes Announces Line-Up

Hard Working Class Heroes are delighted to announce the 50 acts that will make up the line-up for HWCH18.

HWCH made the annual call for bands to apply in June and had a huge response. Over 600 bands applied via First Music Contact’s platform Breaking Tunes and the bands were chosen independently by top international and Irish music industry professionals.

Since the decision was made to reduce the number of showcasing acts to 50 and to focus on export ready artists, the success rate from HWCH has been remarkable. HWCH hopes to see the same success from this years acts, 37 of which have not showcased before.

The live showcases will take place across Friday 28th and Saturday 29th September across five city centre venues (see below). On Thursday 27th September, the opening night, a targeted networking social event will take place in the Chocolate Factory where all the international delegates will have the chance to meet with their Irish counterparts and artists attending the HWCH conference. (The conference is free to all musicians with a Breaking Tunes profile).

This will be Ireland’s largest gathering of bookers, labels, managers, music supervisors, radio folk and journalists from around the world and here at home. The weekend will see a mixture of workshops, discussions and panels which are growing in importance year on year for artists across all levels to meet with people one-to-one who can make a difference. http://hwch.net/#conference
