Organisers of Rhondda Rocks, a live music festival that aims to profile local talent in the area, has announced the full line up of this year’s festival.
Started in 2012, Rhondda Rocks was originally a two day music event held at The Factory, which saw over 1,800 visitors over the three years it ran. The event came to a stop after its 2014 event when it was announced that it would receive no further funding.
This year, after a public rally to ensure the festival continued to put a spotlight on live music in the area, the event will take place at the Rhondda Hotel.
John Davies, festival organiser, said: “After the success of the first three years I just couldn’t see it not happening again for 2015.
“We are really pleased with how many people have supported us in the run up to the event, those who have volunteered time to help out with organisation, the venue and the really great bands that will be performing. We can’t wait to see everyone getting together to keep music live in the Rhondda .”
Rhondda Rocks 2015 will take place at Rhondda Hotel on the 28th, 29th and 30th August.
Russell Toomey, lead singer of four-piece rock and roll outfit Denim Snakes, said: “It’s a real testament to music lovers in the Rhondda that they’re willing to pull together and help out those that are trying to do something good in the area.
“We can’t wait to get on the stage and give them a great time, especially when they’ve helped to secure the future of the event.”
