Whelanslive.com have just announced what must be an early contender for bargain of the year: 30 bands playing 3 venues over 4 nights plus (a) free booze for an insanely reasonable €10.

And the lineup is pretty impressive too:

Thread Pulls | Jennifer Evans | Grand Pocket Orchestra | Planet Parade | Heroes In Hiding | Anthony Furey | Guilty Optics | Toby Kaar | Catscars | Strait Laces | Hired Hands | Cloud Castle Lake | Alarmist | Lost Chord | We Should Be Dead | No Monster Club | Bill Coleman | Lisa O Neill | Ivan St John | Owensie | Hunter-Gatherer | Squarehead | The Danger Is | Shouting At Planes | Hoarsebox | Miracle Bell | Cashier No 9 & more

“January is generally pretty crap so we’ve decided to throw a bit of a celebration featuring a broad range of the acts that you’ll be hearing a lot more about during the course of this year. With over 30 of the best and breaking acts on the line up, spread over 4 days and 3 stages there’s plenty for everyone. Tickets for the event cost only €5 a day or €10 for a 4 day ticket and give you Access All Areas and a free pint of Heineken with each Ticket.

With an abundance of musical styles including Indie, Rock, Electronic, Singer Songwriters, Pop, Lo-Fi, you’ll be hard pushed to find something better to do this January. We’ll be posting all the line ups and stage times on www.whelanslive.com so check the web for more info.”
