ONES TO WATCH 2016

60+ Bands across 3 stages

Thur 14th – Sun 17th January

////////////

Whelan’s Ones to Watch festival is now six years old! As always we’re continuing our quest to find the best emerging talent in the country, whilst also showcasing some artists that have taken the next step and are planning releases in 2016.

For the second time we will be inviting new bands to submit their music – Free of charge – for a chance to play on one of the four stages. The festival covers a wide range of music, from Folk, Indie, HipHop, Electronic, Experimental, Rock and more in between, so spread the word and get your submissions in.

This year we have also teamed up with Musicmaker, who will be providing the backline, Heineken, for your free pint and State.ie, who have helped curate some of the acts that they too will be championing this year for their Faces of 2016.
