We are very excited to announce that multi-platinum English indie pop legends Kaiser Chiefs will headline at Llanfest, the finale party which brings the Eisteddfod to a close. The concert will be the band’s first Welsh gig in almost two years and one of the first opportunities in 2018 for fans in the region to see the band live.
The five-piece band from Leeds, who shot to stardom in 2005 with their sophomore album Employment and are best known for songs including Oh My God, I Predict a Riot and Ruby. They will be supported by renowned pop rock band, The Hoosiers and nineties icons, Toploader.
The Hoosiers will take to the pavilion stage more than a decade after the multi-platinum success of their debut album, The Trick to Life, which featured chart-toppers Worried About Ray and Goodbye Mr. A. Toploader, best known for their 2000 cover of Dancing In the Moonlight, will perform some of their best-loved hits and songs from their 2017 comeback album Seeing Stars.
As the atmosphere builds towards the finale in the evening, there will be live performances from a range of artists from 2pm on the outside stages including a diverse range of rock, pop and indie bands, talented vocalists and a few surprises thrown in between, before the headliners take to the main stage.
Tickets will go on sale to Festival Pass holders and Friends of the Eisteddfod at 9am on Wednesday 7th March 2018, with general release tickets going on sale two weeks later on Thursday 22nd March 2018. If you wish to benefit from the Priority Booking period, you can do so by becoming a Friend of the Eisteddfod by calling the box office on 01978 862001.
