Now an annual & essential  fixture on the Dublin cultural calendar, the Whelanslive Ones To Watch Festival is set to yet again to immolate an otherwise cold & dreary January with four days of amazing music across three stages showcasing 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 2013.

You can expect to hear a dizzying range of musical styles throughout the week from pop to folk to indie rock to metal to synth horror to electronic to experimental and you can participate in this dizzying 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 Carlsberg. That’s a tenner for 50+ acts and a free pint!
