DOUBLE HEADLINER!   Adwaith and Melin Melyn

“Inspiring cult-like devotion and a sea of daft grins are Welsh-speaking surf-pop heroes, Melin Melyn. Shrugging off the weight of the world through their topsy-turvy outlook, they spin hilarious yarns inspired by life’s mundanity” ~ The Guardian

Since emerging from the sun kissed valleys of Wales, Melin Melyn have constantly confounded listeners with their unique blend of psychedelic surf-rock, folk and pop that set them apart from almost all other modern contemporaries and have drawn deserved comparisons to Super Furry Animals and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci.

Their explosive and effervescent live shows are universally lauded by The Guardian, The i, The FT, The Spectator, NME, So Young, Gigwise and more. 

Adwaith

Hailing from Carmarthen, South Wales, Adwaith grew up surrounded by a rich tradition of Welsh-language indie-rock, and the experimental bands that frequented beloved local venue The Parrot. It’s hard to overstate the impact of this cultural backdrop, and when Hollie Singer, Gwenllian Anthony and Heledd Owen first went about founding Adwaith in 2015, they too wanted to wield Welsh as an exciting musical instrument.

After signing to Libertino, Adwaith released their debut single ‘Pwysau’ in 2016, before further delving into mangled, free-wheeling post-punk. Their debut album ‘Melyn’ released in 2018 perfectly skewered the anxiety and unease of adulthood.

AdwaithThe record went on to win the prestigious Welsh Music Prize, and won the support of BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, KEXP, NPR and BBC Introducing.

In 2022 the band released ‘Bato Mato’, inspired by an illuminating train journey into rural Siberia. In a historic first, the band became the first act to win the Welsh Music Prize twice over, and now have three headline tours, an acclaimed Glastonbury set and Manic Street Preachers and IDLES support slots under their belts. As Adwaith record and plan for their third album in the summer of 2023 they announce a 4th member will be joining the band for live shows. Adwaith might be a band with clear roots in Wales – but looking towards the future, they’re now keenly focused on taking the language worldwide.
