Details of the 2024 line up will appear here as soon as available
One of Pembrokeshire’s finest party bands playing everything from Stevie Wonder to Pink Floyd to Aloe Bacc. Fronted by the unforgettable voice of Angharad Kellie, Honey Fungus cut their teeth playing pubs across the county before spreading their wings UK wide, and doing a 5-year residency in Europe. Now they are back and better than ever!
DAZ EDWARDS or just DAZ to anyone who knows him is from Mountain Ash, the lead vocalist and co-writer from the band COOLHAND, he is a firm favourite in the music scene of South Wales and the village of Saundersfoot in particular, appearing many times in recent years on the road outside the Royal Oak with his great selection of classic songs and his ability to entertain a crowd.
This year we have secured his services once again along with the amazing talent of COOLHAND guitarist and long time friend LUKE BRADSHAW.
Daz has raised thousands of pounds for Velindre Cancer Care and is raring to go again, and we can’t wait to have him back along with Luke performing some great music for all, hopefully including a few COOLHAND tunes.
A diverse and exciting band with local Tenby roots. Ordio has some of the best musicians in the business, having played in the UKs leading orchestras and the West End. This is all topped off with the stunning vocals of Celyn Cartwright, leading lady of “Come What May” and soloist in Michael Flatly’s UK and European tour of “Lord of the Dance.” These are not to be missed!
Sorted Ska Band
Wales’ leading Two-Tone Tribute Band playing massive hits by Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners and The Beat. Another home-grown hit from Pembrokeshire who are guaranteed to get you on your feet!

Old Time Sailors
Sailors from days gone by! A 17 piece, shanty power music show, who literally captivate hearts in every port! They will transport you to the 19th century, playing completely unplugged to stay truly authentic. Foot stomping, toe tapping and thigh slappingly good!! A firm favourite for all the family!
Tenby Male Choir
Putting the hwyl and hireath into every heartbeat with their resounding renditions of some of Wales’ favourite classics.
Founded in 1975, Tenby Male Choir is well-established as a leading choir in West Wales.

Victoria graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music. In 2003, she made her English National Opera debut. Since then, Victoria has been delighting audiences worldwide in roles such as Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Magic Flute.
Victoria is a stunning soprano in every sense and we are thrilled to welcome her to our stage.
Classically trained at the Guidlhall School of Music and Drama and National Opera Studio in London, this welsh baritone has had an exceptional career in the music industry. For over 25 years, Mark has worked alongside many major names in the entertainment industry including Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, David Blaine, Rob Brydon and Sir Bryn Terfel. Mark’s career has taken him around the globe singing title roles in opera houses, singing Bread of Heaven before a crowd of 75,000 at The six Nations Rugby Tournament as well as appearing in the real life blockbuster movie “Save the Cinema” with his brother Wynne. On top of all that, he has the founder and creator of The ABC of Opera, open the operatic eyes of children across Wales and beyond. A truly unmissable act.
Wynne Evans BEM
Arguably best known for starring as the spoof opera star Gio Compario in the Go Compare TV adverts, Wynne is anything but “spoof”. The professionally trained opera singer has over 25 years’ experience, and his debut album “A Song in My Heart” went to Number 1 in the classical charts.
He is a regular presenter on BBC Radio Wales and has also presented on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM, alongside starring in his very own TV series on BBC One Wales, ‘Wynne At the Deep End’.
Wynne was awarded the MStJ by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 2008, and the BEM in the Platinum Jubilee Honours List. He was also honoured by the National Eisteddfod with the title of Gorsedd of the Bards, where he presented the BBC2 TV programme, and last year performed for the King Charles III and the Queen Consort Camilla at their Welsh home.
The boy from South West Wales, who studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and National Opera Studio in London, has had an illustrious career, performing at major opera houses across the globe from The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, to Paris Opera De Lyon and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. He sang the role of PIANGI in the 25-year anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera, which was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall to cinemas worldwide and was released on DVD. And if that wasn’t enough… He is also the principal tenor with the Welsh National Opera. His many roles included DUCA Rigoletto, RODOLFO La Bohème, ALFREDO La Traviata, and TAMINO The Magic Flute.
Like Mark, Wynne also appeared in “Save the Cinema”, the true-life blockbuster movie based on the epic adventures of their late mother Liz Evans. We are thrilled to welcome Wynne and Mark to the festival and delighted that we have not one but two of Wales’ finest singers performing for your pleasure.
