places to gig in the valleys


New member
Just wondering, where are some good places to play around the vallies, we have played cardiff a few times now, but I think would want to head more west. Any suggestions?

Also, if this is in the wrong section, sorry.

The Rossitron

Aberdare seems to be putting on quite a few shows lately.. elliott's bar is the venue I usually see banded about

Used to be loads of gigs in rugby clubs etc, but that seems to have dried up in recent years


i still hate hippies
The Factory (i.e The Pop Factory) has started gigs again, but I think that's all external promoters.
Clwb Y Bont in Pontypridd do a few gigs too.

Elliots and the Rugby Club are both good venues in aberdare, and I think there gigs in a place called the Glan-something or other. The promoters for the Pop Factory are all on Facebook. Shadow Happy seems to be the main one
