Music festival celebrates a decade of promoting and helps new Irish talent.

A FESTIVAL WHICH has been doing sterling work showcasing Irish bands and musicians is celebrating its tenth year.

Hard Working Class Heroes, an independent showcase which helps throw a spotlight on new Irish music is currently taking place at venues across Dublin today and tomorrow.

Over the whole three days of the fest (it began yesterday), 100 bands and acts get to display their talents to the public and industry figures as well as access workshops and advice sessions on how to face the challenge’s in today’s music business.

The festival is the brainchild of First Music Contact, an umbrella organisation which provides advice, information and practical promotional aid to musicians. To celebrate a decade of putting Irish music to the fore, there is an exhibition of ten years of the HWCH festival posters in Filmbase, Curved Street, Temple Bar at the moment.

Keep an eye on their Facebook page for details of pop-up gigs in shops and cafés today and tomorrow too.
