Hard Working Class Heroes, Ireland's annual showcase festival and conference for new music and digital, begins in Dublin today, October 3, and runs until Saturday October 5.

Over 100 bands will play at this year's festival, with The Workman's Club, The Button Factory, The Mercantile, Meeting House Square, The Twisted Pepper, Bad Bob's and The New Theatre among the night-time venues.

Along with free daytime gigs, the festival also features talks, panels, workshops, and, the organisers say, "heated rows on all aspects of the music industry and that part of the business which intersects with tech".

Three-night tickets are priced at €45 with nightly tickets €20 and single venue entry tickets €10 for one night.
