The End for Merthyr Rock?

Back in 2011, I had my first experience of photographing a great little Rock Festival. With acts like Revoker and the mighty Skindred giving it large, Merthyr Rock established itself as a good little showcase for great Welsh musical talent.

Unfortunately, four years on, the organisers have announced that for the foreseeable future, there won’t be another.

We’re sad to announce that there will be no Merthyr Rock festival in 2015.

We took on Merthyr Rock as an event in 2013, and last year’s one day event and fringe festival went well, but for a combination of circumstances, we have regrettably decided not to stage the event this year.

We’d like to thank everybody who has supported the event over the last few years; our partners, the bands and of course our audience. Currently there are no plans for any further editions of Merthyr Rock.

Thanks for your support.

The sight of a marquee full of people doing the Newport Helicopter will live with me forever. Thank you Merthyr Rock. You will be missed.
