Hozier is to headline this year's 2FM Xmas Ball in aid of the ISPCC with tickets on sale next Wednesday.

He will be joined on the bill at the 3Arena on Friday December 14 by Walking on Cars, Keywest,
Wyvern Lingo, Chasing Abbey, Wild Youth and Brave Giant.

Hosting on the night will be RTÉ 2FM presenters including Nicky Byrne and Jenny Greene, Eoghan McDermott, Tracy Clifford, Bernard O'Shea, Jennifer Zamparelli and Keith Walsh. 

All involved in the show are giving their services for free. Last year's event raised over €480,000 for the ISPCC. 

"As ever the line-up is stunning," said the Head of 2FM, Dan Healy. "It really feels like we are in the golden age of Irish music and what a night we will all have.

"I can't wait to hear Hozier raise the roof when he sings Nina Cried Power. Let's raise another half a million for the ISPCC - ISPCC Cried Power."

Tickets, priced €39.50, are on sale next Wednesday, September 26, at 9am from usual outlets.
