Hoyfest returns this weekend bringing some of the best upcoming bands to the heart of Cardiff. Taking place on Friday 28th September at The Moon before relocating to Clwb Ifor Bach for the rest of the weekend (29th/30th), this is a festival where you will find no clashes! None whatsoever! What more can you ask for? Although there’s no reason to miss any of the bands at Hoyfest this weekend, here are 5 bands that you certainly shouldn’t be missing.
Cardiff based garage rock band Himalayas are a force to be reckoned with with their harsh, but vigorous music. The band have had a huge summer performing at the likes of Reading and Leeds as well as being invited to play alongside Kaiser Chiefs, The Cribs and others.
London based quartet with funky, riff-heavy tracks with a hint of nostalgia and sure to give a dynamic live performance.
Six-piece indie-pop band from Brighton with chirpy, feel-good tracks to make you dance.
The Velvet Hands
Cornish, nostalgic rock n roll band with bounds of energy. The Velvet Hands solid debut album ‘Party’s Over’ came out this August.
Avalanche Party specialise in their own breed of dirty, heavy rock tracks. The band are also just about to head out on a co-headline UK tour alongside Canshaker Pi.
