The first acts have been announced for Merthyr Rock festival happening over the three days from Friday 31st August until Sunday 2nd September returning to Cyfarthfa Park, Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.

Razorlight
Merthyr Rock is back for its second year offering a mix of indie and rock bands, both home-grown talent and further afield including Razorlight, Kids in Glass Houses, Deaf Havana, Saves the Day, Yashin, and Arcane Roots, with many more to be announced .

Kids In Glass Houses said, "We curated a stage at Merthyr Rock last year and spent the day at the festival having a great time. Now this year we're honoured to be playing what is set to be a fantastic weekend."

Rhodri Jones, festival director, added, "We had an incredible response to the festival last year, and this year's event is going to be bigger, better, bolder and an awesome way to end this Summer."

There will be loads of on-site extras, which will be announced across the summer. The festival will take place in a tented village to ensure that whatever the South Wales weather may be, the audience will stay dry.

A special weekend early bird ticket priced at £55 (until noon Monday 2nd July). Other ticket information including day tickets will be announced soon. Camping at Grawen Farm is £15 per person, for 3 nights (Fri, Sat, Sun).
