Pinegrove, Dungen, Dutch Uncles and more join us for our MASSIVE Welsh Beer FestivalPosted Wed 22 Mar. 2017

We're bringing Courtyard back to London’s King's Cross on the second May Bank Holiday weekend (Thursday 25th - Monday 29th May) for a special, cask-conditioned mini-festival. You thirsty lot have been told about a few of the 140+ Welsh beers we’ll be bringing along, so now it’s time for a first look at the bands…

We are delighted to announce that the mighty PINEGROVE will be topping the party, bringing their emphatically endearing country-rock with them; Sweden's greatest ever (possibly/maybe) export and GM favourites DUNGEN join us too; and following the release of their fifth album last month, DUTCH UNCLES will light up King’s Cross with their brilliantly witty, hip-swivelling left-field music.

PLUS founding member of The Coral, BILL RYDER-JONES, our mate HUW STEPHENS on the decks and loads more below, and still up our sleeves to announce.
