MANIC STREET PREACHERS to SPONSOR the BIG FREE WEEKEND MUSIC STAGE at the HANBURY ARMS.
The Caerleon Arts Festival grows in stature by the year and this year it has reached new heights with the Manic Street Preachers, colloquially known as “The Manics”, financially sponsoring the stage at the Hanbury Arms in support of the Caerleon Festival musicians.
Manic Street Preachers is a Welsh alternative rock band who, having formed in Blackwood in 1986 presently have a local recording studio, so therefore can be considered one of our own. Thirty-three years since forming, they still retain a loyal following and a cult status, with yet another sell-out tour taking place this year.
Throughout their career, The Manics have headlined many Festivals, including Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival and Reading.
The Caerleon Festival greatly appreciates the support being given by the Manic Street Preachers and allowing their name to be linked to the town’s 2019 Festival.
