Cadstock, the best free outdoor music festival in Barry, is calling on our community to keep it alive.

Please pop along to the Benefit Gig at Barry Island Sports and Social Club on February 1st for, not only a night out with the bestest Barry bands, but to show your strong support to Keep Cadstock Alive.

We all know that the weekender, which took place on August 17th and 18th last year, is one of the focal points of the Barry calendar, showing once again that community events are the absolute backbone of our town.

So why not grab a fast-selling tickets for the #KeepCadstockAlive February Fundraiser, that promises an evening of top tunes, really great raffles, an awesome auction.

And a Line Up bursting withe bestest and brightest Barry musicians.

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.

Mack Events, who run Barry’s Summer Tribute Band Weekender, have donated a GlastonBarry Juniors Family Pass for free entry to the event at Romilly Park on Friday July 24th 2020.

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