Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will kick off a summer of live music in the Welsh capital in the gorgeous grounds of Cardiff Castle, bringing his international hits to the iconic location in the heart of the Welsh capital.
2018 has been a hugely successful year for Noel, who landed a Mercury Prize nomination with his most recent High Flying Birds LP Who Built The Moon?. The album was the bands 3rd straight #1 album, following on from the successes of their self-titled debut and 2015’s Chasing Yesterday. Noel and the band have also completed an arena tour of the UK, toured extensively across North America, Europe and Asia as well as confirming a headline appearance for This is Tomorrow and Mad Cool Festival in 2019.
Main support comes from special guest Gaz Coombes, a fellow Ivor nominee and the ex-frontman of Supergrass, who returned earlier this year with his 3rd studio album World’s Strongest Man which has seen multiple inclusions in the ‘best of 2018 lists’ by the likes of Fopp, Mojo, and Rough Trade.
Also Cardiff’s very own Boy Azooga, who’ve had a phenomenal year with an appearance on Later with…Jools Holland, packed festival crowds including Swn Festival and Green Man Festival and their debut album 1,2, Kung Fu took home the Welsh Music Prize last month.
