The first act for the Blues Day Porthcawl Jazz Festival  is SICKNOTESTEVE - Mississippi Blues with an edge!
Join us all for a full day of Blues and Beer incorporating the 'Blues Beer Festival' - craft beers and real ales.

Wristbands will be allocated so you can come and go from the Grand Pavilion Porthcawl all day.

Its going to Blues-an-Beer-tastic!


The first act for the JAZZ Day Porthcawl Jazz Festival  is DARIUS BRUBECK QUARTET - Playing to sold-out houses at regional festivals and clubs, the quartet’s acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging.  Darius, while known for representing his famous father’s musical legacy and for his work in South Africa, is an imaginative jazz composer and performing his compositions is an important reason for the group’s popularity.
