Lakefest is a family-friendly music festival with an eclectic musical line-up featuring established acts from the world of pop, folk, indie-rock and all you find in between.

The Stranglers also recently announced they would be bounding into their 50th anniversary year with the announcement of a special live summer performance at Caldicot Castle, on Saturday 8 June 2024. Sharing their 50th year with Caldicot, as it celebrates 50 years of town status, this will be a glittering golden celebration that Caldicot will never forget. The Stranglers are one of the longest surviving bands to have originated in the UK punk scene, and they bring their special Golden Anniversary summer show to the precipice of punk power, as they are joined on the night by friends, Buzzcocks.

“50 years, and what a raging punk journey the music of The Stranglers has had,” the band said in a statement. “There’s such a wide and diverse catalogue of songs that we want to share with everyone, so we’ll be hand selecting the best tracks to perform live on the night. Blasting out those punk/rock classics, under the Welsh sky and overlooked by the stony walls of Caldicot Castle, that’s going to be a special experience for us all. And we’ll be flying the flag for Caldicot too, as it celebrates its 50th year of achieving town status, so it’s a golden night for us and the town, and we’ll be celebrating with you. A night to remember for everyone one. We can’t wait.”
