Feeder Homecoming : “One of the first major outdoor events in Wales”
Event organiser Mark Hopkins says that following pandemic restrictions, “…We’re delighted that this will be one of the first major outdoor events in Wales and we wanted to make the party even bigger! Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club does exactly that, big tunes to get everyone moving.
“The show was originally going to be extra special with Feeder playing a hometown show and it’s going to be even more special with this now being one of the first live outdoor events in Wales.”
Headlining will be Feeder, led by Grant Nicholas, alongside bass player and comrade Taka Hirose. The British rock mainstays are responsible for some of the biggest British indie rock hits in the past twenty years.
Support for this huge event come from special guests Brighton indie band The Magic Gang, whose second album Death of a Party received critical and fan adoration worldwide; NME hailed it as ‘A timeless and genre-blurring record’.
The line-up also sees two Welsh artists performing, first up is retro rock outfit Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, who have received prestigious air play from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Jack Saunders and Huw Stephens and disco-infused blues rock from Tom Auton & the Bottle Breakers who has just released his latest single 9 til 9.
