Ones To Watch 2014

whelans-ones-to-watch-2014It’s that time of the year again. Ones To Watch 2014 is taking place from January 8th to the 11th in Whelan’s and The Village.

It’s the first mini-festival of the year and, if last year is any guide, it will be great!

In 2013 we covered many of the acts that appeared with mini-reviews and photos. We saw some amazing bands we’re looking forward to Ones To Watch 2014 as it’s one of the best places to see talented musicians in an intimate setting.

Tickets for Ones To Watch 2014 are unbelievably cheap – €5 for a day or €10 (with a free pint) for all 4 days.

More than 50 acts will play this week on the stages of Whelan’s and The Village, so make sure you’re there.
