Whelan’s Ones To Watch Festival 8th – 11th January 2014

This coming week see’s the return of the Whelan’s Ones To Watch Festival. Taking place across three stages between Whelan’s and The Village it will see some 50 new Irish acts take the stage across four days for the princely sum of €5 for one night or €10 for all four nights and that includes a free pint of Carlsberg for each ticket.

The first twenty acts to be announced are as follows:
