Hard Working Class Heroes have announced the bands selected to play this year’s festival over 12-14 September.

The festival, which is designed to showcase the best new, emerging and un-signed talent in the country, will feature over 80 acts as it returns to Dublin's Temple Bar area for its sixth consecutive year.

Among those announced to play are former Turn frontman Ollie Cole, Choice Music Prize winners Super Extra Bonus Party and hotly-tipped Dublin band Tiger Empire (pictured).

The festival headliners will be announced in the coming weeks, while HWCH will also feature a 'Scottish Invasion', photographic exhibition and seminar and mentor sessions.

The 'Scottish Invasion' will be curated by Domino Records signings Sons & Daughters and will see the best new Scottish acts showcased in Dublin.
