Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister, will be the first person ever to be honoured as the Day President for Llanfest, the finale day of the International Eisteddfod.
There has been a long tradition of Day Presidents being honoured at the week-long Eisteddfod. Day Presidents are invited to the event to recognise the ongoing work they do in spreading the message of peace and goodwill, which is at the heart of the event.
Llanfest is the final Sunday of the festival and has evolved into a modern mix of rock, pop and indie music, including bands such as the Manic Street Preachers and this year’s headliners, indie-pop legends the Kaiser Chiefs. (more…)
The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod announced today that the world’s most famous music club, The Cavern Club, will host its first ever pop-up stage at this year’s festival. The Liverpool-based music venue will be joining bands including the Kaiser Chiefs at the festival’s finale party, Llanfest, on Sunday 8th July, as the date also marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ animated film Yellow Submarine.
This exciting collaboration on the Lindop Toyota Globe Stage will see The Cavern Club entertain audiences with performances by their world class resident musicians.
The legendary club has been the beating heart of Liverpool’s iconic music scene for over seven decades and will celebrate The Beatles pop history at the festival – hosting a myriad of music performances by world class singers from Liverpool.
