ONES TO WATCH 2012 in association with Heineken & Musicmaker presents


Wednesday 11th January – Saturday 14th January

Following on from the amazing success of last year’s Ones To Watch festival, Whelanslive are set to light up a dreary January with four days of amazing music across three stages featuring the best and brightest of new and emerging Irish acts that we expect to see a lot more of this year and some established acts with something important to say in 2012.

You can expect to hear a dizzying range of musical styles throughout the week from folk to indie rock to punk rock to experimental and you can participate in this wonderful parade of Irish musical talent for the princely sum of €5 for a day ticket and €10 for a festival ticket and that also includes a free pint of Heineken.
