Merthyr's Big Weekender - 2 days of live music this August.

Thursday 15th April 2021

A one-off music festival is to take place at Penderyn Square, Merthyr this Summer on 28-29 August.

With a two-year hiatus for the Merthyr Rising Festival due to the COVID pandemic, the Merthyr Rising organisers are planning to bring live music back to Penderyn Square for 2021.

The event aims to be a much needed cheerful gathering with the opportunity to look forward to and enjoy live music for the first time for many nearly 18 months. 

Artists and lineups are being organised as we write this post with an expected mix of well known signed acts, local talent and DJ's.

The event will be subject to covid restrictions. At this point, there is no clear idea of what rules will be in place. The organisers of the event will be communicating regulations regularly to keep attendees and acts informed and ensure safety is paramount.

More information and announcements about lineups and tickets will be made soon via the Merthyr Rising social media platforms.
