We're pooling together our expertise, ethos and all year programme; in order to unite good people with good music. Performing at this years Rhondda Rocks festival, we have announced a stellar line-up appealing to many of our audiences musical tastes young and old. Saturday’s headliners are legendary late-80's band The Primitives, famous for their 1988 international hit 'Crash', which was featured on the hit Jim Carey movie, Dumb and Dumber. Sunday's headlining act are cheeky mid-90's Liverpudlian band, Space, who came to prominence with global hit singles such as “Female of the Species” and "The Ballad of Tom Jones”. A perfect opportunity for reuniting Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews? We're also presenting a current wave of new music with appearances from Sweet Baboo aka Stephen Black, a native of the North Wales countryside and a flamboyant single-minded, singer-songwriter. We're particularly excited to present Islet at this years festival. An incredible 4-piece psych-prog outfit from Cardiff, renowned for their explosive live shows. Another highlight, is a slot from Keys, a stomping garage-rock band who draw influence from Frank Zappa, The Black Keys and The Kinks. For lovers of nostalgic indie, also on the bill is legendary Bluetones' frontman, Mark Morriss, who'll be performing versions of his hit singles with a stripped back guitar. Sticking to our ethos and providing lots of opportunities for homegrown talent, we have performances from The Coalition, Blackbyrd, Replaced with Robots, Zephyr Reign, Cherry Rebels, and many more live acts who will be celebrating Rhondda Rocks with us over the weekend.
