Visit Rhyl Arena for Nostalgia Fest 2017
Celebrate the music of the 70’s and 80’s at Nostalgia Fest being held at the Rhyl Events Arena on Sunday 13th August, 2017, 12.00 noon until 6.00 pm.
This is a free event and will bring event goers right back to the good times they had growing up with some iconic bands of the decade including The Christians, Dr and The Medics, Aswad, Odyssey, and tribute band Ska Brittania. Other bands are yet to be announced.
Groves Head of Facilities, Assets and Housing said “I am delighted to welcome Nostalgia Fest to Rhyl Events Arena. The newly themed programme and extended hours will no doubt be greatly received by the community.
“Nostalgia Fest, with its fantastic line-up of performers is just one of the highlights of the summer events programme and enables us to attract visitors who, in turn, spend in our shops, bars, restaurants and overnight accommodation. We want more and more people to come and discover Rhyl and contribute to our economy.
“With the continued support of Rhyl Town Council I’m proud that we can provide a free day of family fun. These events are just as much for local people as they are for visitors and it’s especially important that we have family orientated activities during the Summer. I urge everyone to come along and enjoy Nostalgia Fest 2017.”
Clive Jackson of Dr & The Medics said: “One thing I love about the Summer is the fact that it is festival time!
“Festivals mean a lot to me as they bring people and communities together to celebrate and enjoy music!
“We can't wait to get back to Rhyl to perform as part of Nostalgia Fest 2017. We will be playing a set full of great 80's songs that everyone knows that have all been given the Medics treatment! It is the 35th Anniversary of the band this year and so look forward to seeing you all there to celebrate in the Sun (It never rains when we play!) with us!”
