Info: Time to dust myself off and get back in the live music saddle, and no better place to start than at Whelan's bi-annual Ones To Watch festival of the best movers and shakers emerging on the Irish music scene. Both of last year's events were heaving with talent, and the line-up for this weekend looks equally as tasty, in addition to familiar faces I'm looking forward to seeing as many acts as possible whom I've never seen live or heard before. 

Below is a Playlist to whet both your and my own appetite in advance of the wonders that are ahead, as well as the latest line-up and timetable. Tickets are €5 per night (the festival runs over four nights starting tomorrow, Thursday, 12th January) or €10 for all 4 nights, crazy value. See you there.

Tickets can be purchased here:

*Note times and stages to be confirmed for Saturday & Sunday.
