Jealous Lovers Club, the renowned and much loved promoters teamed up with Juxtaposed Club Nights to provide what was one of the best live events this year held at the prolific Gwdihw– in association with Circuit Sweet and Cardiff’s Quench Magazine.

The entire day was nothing but perfection! With 12 acts playing across two stages, all of which adding to the uplifting atmosphere. The day was full of talented artists showcasing their abilities to the venue, each act was another to discover and to fall in love with.

Kick starting the event on the main stage on the day, the Quench stage, vivacious duo Cleft. Cleft were simply the right act to open the stage with, uniting the crowd to stand and listen in awe at the talent before them. Cleft are a  turbo-prog two-piece band from Manchester consisting of Dan on guitar and John on drums. Together they create an intense explosion of filthy instrumental rock. Their set in it’s entirety, simply put- huge. Each track more thunderous and more impressive than the last.  This hard hitting duo are creating something phenomenal and are a must see live.
