ORGANISERS of a popular Welsh festival on Anglesey have put together a sensational line-up to mark the 19th edition of the event taking place this weekend.

Llangefni's Gŵyl Cefni, will return this Saturday (June 8) and promises to be a festival to remember.

Together with the big-name bands such as Maffia Mr Huws, Blodau Papur and Fleur de Lys, as well as Aelwyd yr Ynys, there are other well-loved favourites such as Mojo and Meinir Gwilym.

There’s also a breadth of young local talent, such as the crowd-pleasing Band Samba a Makaton Canolfan Addysg y Bont, Aerobig, Jac Elis Roberts a Howling Black.

Thanks to a grant from Cronfa’r Degwm, Anglesey County Council and Menter Iaith Môn, as well as the dedication of local volunteers, the 19th Party Gig, located at the Bull Hotel car park, will be free to attend.

There’ll even be a timely break for performers, giving festival goers a chance to unite before the big screen for some noisy #RedWall support for the Wales football team, who will be playing in Croatia.

As well as the Gig, on Saturday morning, there is a Free Family Fun morning with popular Bendant and Cadi, as well as Super Ted, Sali Mali, Peppa and Selog.

Festival warm-up activities for the adults start with a Welsh Quiz Night at the Railway tavern at 8pm on Friday night, hosted by quizmaster Dilwyn Griffiths.

Nia Wyn Thomas who heads Menter Iaith Môn said: “It is amazing that this special festival continues as one of the highlights of the Welsh calendar on the Island.

"19 years of celebrating and supporting Welsh music which is a tribute to the love of volunteers as well as financial support.

"The program, as always, includes something for everyone, from young families, the youth of Wales to the loyal head-bangers of the Welsh music scene.

"With a fantastic line-up, a party buzz and a fun Welsh atmosphere, we hope people from near and far will join in with celebrations at Llangefni.

"This is a long-time favourite event with locals but I’d also like to make a special appeal for people to promote this festival to those not so familiar with Welsh events and also learners."
