Transition, Skellig, Dayinahole, Phil James all to play new Rhondda Valley event.

THE FIRST ever Christian arts festival to take place in Wales' Rhondda Valley is now set for 17th July. The one day event, called Revolution, promises bands, soloists, dramatists, storytellers, poets, filmmakers, dancers, comedians and preachers. It will be held at The Pop Factory, Porth, Glamorgan. The venue for the event was originally the factory where Corona pop was manufactured but, with local and European funds, has now been restored as a state-of-the-art television recording studio. Musicians so far booked to play at the event are Transition, Skellig, Dayinahole, Phil James, Ann & Tim O'Hare and Kate Westall. The festival is being sponsored by Cross Rhythms.
