Cast to headline Pearl Melody Black Stage, Sunday 26th May

Monday 4th February 2019

Merthyr Rising Festival is pleased to announce seminal nineties band 'Cast' as its Sunday night headlining act. 

Cast were formed in Liverpool in the early nineties following vocalist and guitarist John Power's departure from The La's (responsible for the timeless 'There She Goes'). The band went on to achieve much critical and commercial success, with a double-platinum debut album and seven UK Top Ten hits, including 'Flying' and 'Guiding Star'.  

Having completed a Greatest Hits tour in 2018 (including dates in Australia), the band are playing a handful of festivals this year in the UK, and we at Merthyr Rising Festival are thrilled to bring them to Wales!

We can't wait to hear their beautifully-crafted, anthemic songs ring out in Penderyn Square; We think it's going to be a special night.
