Hard Working Class Heroes 2014



Planet Parade

Hard Working Class Heroes 2014 was a last minute festival addition for me – after thinking that I wasn’t going to be in a position to go, I was so delighted to be able to head along to two of the three nights. A really impressive line-up inevitably lead to clashes, but I was happy with the acts I got to see, particularly as HWCH 2014 was hit by some serious rain and bad weather which meant venue hopping was less than appealing.

Featuring some of the best Irish acts around, Hard Working Class Heroes gives a great chance to catch bands that you might not think of seeing elsewhere. Some of my favourite acts to see now are ones that I first saw at Hard Working Class Heroes.

The Mighty Stef


The Mighty Stef upstairs in Whelans was one of those perfect gigs – the band were raring to go and the crowd was more than ready to join in. I’d only ever seen Stef do a solo set, so seeing him with full band was great. With such an exhaustive back catalogue, I really don’t understand why these guys aren’t bigger than they are. 


A massive part of the perfection of the night was one of the support acts, A Lazarus Soul. One of those deep, rough Dublin voices, his song about missing people gave me chills and I get goose bumps even thinking about it now. It was a really special moment that could only have happened upstairs in Whelans, in near darkness, with the fire crackling behind us.
