Standing proud at the hilltop of the Dingle is the Bandstand. Hosting a variety of eclectic sounds, its philosophy is to bring diverse, unsigned and experimental acts to the stage.

This stage is perfect for those of you looking for a comfy sofa to chill with a beer, hoping to source new music. Tucked into its own area on the far side of the Dingle, the Bandstand creates an atmosphere all of its own. Just ask Phill Jupitus – he couldn’t be prised from his choice armchair…


2017 line up includes…

YOUTH
Youth is four pals playing reverb-drenched, noise rock. Starting in Bristol in 2013, they have slowly made a name for themselves within the local music scene and surrounding areas. They gather influences from various different genres of music and have frequently met with people unable to quite put a finger on their sound. Mixing intricate and emotive beauty with overdriven, reverb drenched noise, backed up by punchy and attacking drum sections. 
BOY AZOOGA
Daf, Davey, Dylan and Sam are four guys based in Cardiff who make up the memorably named Boy Azooga who are all about the real rocky times. Making their Nozstock debut you can catch some equally interestingly named songs such as ‘Breakfast Epiphany’ and ‘Face Behind Her Cigarette’. 
ANDY JONES
Swansea based singer songwriter Andy Tamlyn Jones is being lauded as one of Wales’ best kept secrets, thanks to the mesmerising fire and passion delivered in his sets. He writes about diverse subjects like his upbringing and Swansea’s industrial past.
PASSION BEL CANON
Passion Bel Canon, the unlikely alliance of an environmental manager, barista and jobbing actress, started life as a series of internet adverts looking for musical collaborators in 2013. Since their online beginnings, the band have been merging their individual influences to create their own brand of atmospheric indie-pop. Combining Lauren Partridge’s soaring emotive vocals, Will Barter’s dynamic guitar playing and Jamie Smith’s powerful upright drumming style, the London based trio create infectiously rhythmic songs with a dark edge. Using an array of synths and samples played alongside acoustic instruments including kalimba, glockenspiel and ukulele, the band’s live and recorded performances have been likened to alternative pop artists Bat For Lashes and Daughter. Releasing their debut single ‘Land of Hope’ with DTSE Music in 2014, Passion Bel Canon have received radio play on BBC 6Music, supported Irish chart toppers HamsandwicH.
