Megaday will be returning to Caerphilly RFC’s Virginia Park for its 25th edition.
The charity music festival is held each year to raise money for Velindre Cancer Centre.
This year’s event will be kicked off by an evening with ex-Welsh rugby internationals Shane Williams, Martyn Williams and Andy Powell on Saturday, August 24.
The decorated trio, who between them have won Grand Slam titles, played in World Cups and taken part in British and Irish Lions tours, will be sharing their experiences of the game at the heated marquee from 6.30pm.
Meanwhile, a number of local bands will be performing from 1.30pm to 10.30pm on Sunday, August 25, including the Love Handles, 4th Street, Neon Ballroom, Best Served Chilled, The Clones, Strip Lights, Access All Areas, Cancel the Transmission and Guardians of Public Morality.
Megaday has raised more than £330,000 for Velindre since it began in 1995, with six local bands performing in the first ever edition.
The volunteer-run event was set up in memory of Caerphilly musician Andrew Nichols, who lost his battle with cancer that same year.
Andrew was known to friends as ‘Mega’ and so the event was named after him.
In August 2001, Paul “PG” Grahame, who had been instrumental in the organisation of Megaday from the outset and had performed at every Megaday with his band, PG and the Tips, also passed away from cancer.
Following this, the Megaday organisers became more determined than ever and the music festival has been held in memory of both Mega and PG ever since.
