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.

A highly anticipated act to play the Quench stage, Nai Harvest, took to the outdoor main stage around the middle mark of the Microfestival and with them bought the weather and a plethora of adoring fans. Ben Thompson – guitar and vocals and Lew Currie – drums are a dynamic duo who hold their own. The Sheffield born 2 piece create their own taste of indie punk, lo-fi emo, there’s no specific genre you can tie these chaps to, but what can be said is they both are bursting with talent. The Topshelf Records/ Dog Knight signed act completely captivated the crowd with their twinkly kinsella esque guitar riffs and their energetic drum fills fused with their true DIY ethos, their angst and a wall of FUZZ.
