Having caught this show last year at End of the Road festival, we can honestly confirm that Rhys’ multimedia performance – in which he recounts through the mediums of song, puppetry and thinly veiled nonsense (amongst others), the tales of a little known-about Welsh-speaking tribe of Native Americans (seriously, what is in this guy’s tea?) – is nothing short of totally and inexplicably brilliant. Truly, stupendously, incomprehensibly brilliant at that.

There will be over 25 bands and Djs across four stages and two days – musical festival-ities for the winter! Top stuff.
