A first of its kind music festival is coming to Pen-y-Cae this summer.

We Are The Cae Music Festival 2022 is a joint venture between Penycae Football Club and Pen-y-Cae Community Council, and is hoping to be the first of many rock festivals in the future.

Shared profits from the event will go towards keeping the football club on a safe financial footing, increasing the number of teams at all levels and developing the ground and facilities, whilst from the Community Councils perspective improving youth facilities in the village such as finishing the skatepark infrastructure.

Both organisations are proud to bring the first music festival of its kind to the doorstep of Pen-y-Cae for the benefit of its people and youth for years to come.

They are being assisted by music promoter Peter Footitt of The Music Mine Studios to organise the event involving 7 hours of live music.
