WELSHPOOL will be rocking and rolling with its annual day of live music this bank holiday Sunday, May 26.

There is a slightly different feel to the festival this year but many of the usual venues will again be joining in with free pub music sessions between 1 and 11pm.

The seven venues taking part will be The Talbot, The Pheasant, The Monkey Puzzle Cafe, The Westwood, The Bay Tree, The Wellington and The Angel.

“We have acts from across North Wales and the Midlands, as well as some excellent local talent”, said Barry Williams of the festival organisers.

Headlining each stage will be The Quirks at the Talbot, Platform Zero at the Pheasant, Chasing August at the Angel, Barry Williams at the Bay Tree, Karnival Knowledge at the Monkey Puzzle, and John Hughes at the Wellington.

Others playing around the venues on the day will be Sunday Morning Ritual, The Bunkbeds, Twenty on Black, Lost Stations, Estate, Kizzy & El, Neu’Shea, The Mono Sideboards, Shifty Chicken Shed, Utterly Nomad, Savannah, Sonya Smith, Jim Hudson, Ben Pruden, Josh Lobley, Sally Crosby, Eleri Wilson, Dave Briggs, The Odd Bods, Michael Riffel, Acoustic Cafe, Neil Saunders and Millie May.

While six of the venues will have live music, The Westwood will be hosting a Vinyl Revival dance music night.

“We’re really excited with the acts that we’ve got playing and the variety of styles and genres on display and we’re looking forward to a great day of live music!” said Barry.
