Coming off of major performances at big events such as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the Grammys and Coachella, Hozier will be one of many artist playing Edgefest’s main stage on April 25. This Irish born artist made a big splash across the pond in 2014 when Take Me To Church  went viral on Youtube. Hozier’s stop at the Dallas House of Blues on March 20 is already sold out. Because of this, many  fan’s of his cool, classical sound will be sure to gather around the Edgefest stage to listen to him perform tracks of his self titled album, Hozier.
