Update: Stage times.

Hard Working Class Heroes (HWCH) has announced the bands playing the festival this year for their 10th birthday from the Thursday 4th to Saturday 6th October in The Button Factory, The Mercantile, The Grand Social, Twisted Pepper, Meeting House Square and The Workman’s Club. The full list of bands is below with links where you can do your homework.

Five I’ve yet to see but want to: CLU, Eatenbybears, Ghosts, A Dark Horse and Faws.

Also: Forrests but they’ve yet to play a gig.

Five I’ve seen but you should if you haven’t already: Come On Live Long, Young Wonder, Ships, Ginnels and White Collar Boy.

Incidentally, I was one of the judges for about 20 bands and one discovery I made which didn’t make it in was Max Zaska’s Groove, a weird funk band that completely threw me off.
