Before we know it the warm weather will be gone and winter will be upon us.............but the good news is so will this music festival!

In a country with many thousands of loyal Punk fans, we wanted to make sure that our first festival of this kind in Wales delivers some of the very best sounds the UK has to offer; and with The Rezillos headlining and several other very different, but striking bands in the line-up, we are in no doubt that this will be a great festival and one live music event not to miss!

Having made it into the 21st century that they sang about so often in the 20th it’s fitting that The Rezillos rebirth should warp them into the present still finding themselves firmly in step both musically and conceptually. Their music has stayed edgy, having remained in its own league from the very beginning. Certainly, like all punk rock it's sometimes creatively derivative (er, like all rock and roll...), thus, while a lot of good bands can sound like everyone else, the really great bands are what everyone's sounding like and yet whose sound simply cannot be repeated

This year's line-up so far comprises of:

The Rezillos - need anything else be said!

Anti Pasti - the industrial rumble of their Midlands home may have given way to the sleek hiss of hi-tech engineering, but Anti-Pasti's thunderous locomotive rolls on untamed!

Chron Gen born in a Hertfordshire school music room, one rainy afternoon in 1977 and raised on a healthy diet of playing Pistols, Clash & Damned covers!

Department S - evolving from a previous punk/ska combo, Guns For Hire, the band are back playing gigs for what is now the 9th year since they reformed!

Foreign Legion - their powerful stage presence is renowned for its raw energy and the band never fails to deliver a show that absolutely rocks!

Peter And The test Tube Babies playing shows all over the world and cemented their status as one of the most brilliant and funniest live bands in punk rock culture!

Sham 69 - to many true fans who know and have followed the band, they still command respect and keeping the true faith of what SHAM 69 original!

When these artists step on stage (and more acts to be announced soon), festival goers can expect to see explosive, uncut, full on live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a mix of punk in its many forms

No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone's taste!

Don't miss out on going to Newport Punk and New Wave Festival on Saturday 3rd November
