The lineup for this year’s Hard Working Class Heroes festival has been revealed and it’s BIG. 100 acts, all homegrown, will perform on stages throughout various venues in Dublin city centre, from the 6th – 8th of October.
HWCH are have also announced the inaugural Conor Walsh Memorial Bursary. In March 2016 an alumni and friend of the festival, the extremely talented and sadly missed Conor Walsh, died suddenly. HWCH will ask all 100 bands participating to vote for the act who most embodies Conor’s talent and bravery among their number. That act will be awarded €2,500 toward a recording or tour bill.
