Firm favourites Black Jam Circus are to headline the Gig. The rock chick favourites Stonehouse, and the modtastic Second Chance are on the bill.

There will also be stints from Him and Me, Falling From Grace, and Ben Nicolas. Bro Radio will host the Auction, and Raffle with his colleague Nathan Spackman as compere DJ.

Scott Walter, owner of SW Flooring, has donated the auction, and some raffle prizes – including signed boxing gloves from Barry’s Selby Brothers. The trusty Dean Snooks will be on hand to cover security.

If you fancy a pre-Gig pint, Butterfly Collector owner Gareth Slattery is selling special Cadstock Cask Ale – a delicious a grapefruit infused potion that sees 10p from every pint go to the Keep Cadstock Alive Campaign.

With three such brilliant bands headlining, and the super supports, tickets are selling fast – so please come and buy yours before they’re all gone. Thank you.”

The February Fundraiser is in support of Cadstock, the best free outdoor music festival in Barry, really needs our community to keep it alive.

The weekender, which took which will take place on July 18th and 19th this year, is one of the focal points of the Barry calendar. Founded in 2009, it has almost trebled in size so that 2019’s decade celebration was one of the biggest and bestest ever seen.

So let’s keep our free, family-friendly, fun Cadstock alive for everyone. 

Thank you for your support – the Gig is going to be a Goodie!

Speak soon.
