Here Come the Girls! The Sugababes, most successful girl group of the century come to Pontypridd to headline a spectacular weekend of entertainment.
Keisha, Heidi and Amelle are sure to push your button when they perform at the second Ponty’s Big Weekend on Saturday 18th July.
The multi million selling trio have had an amazing career thus far, releasing twenty-three singles, sixteen of which achieving top ten chart success, and six reaching the number one spot in the UK.
With seven albums reaching top forty charts worldwide, five of which attaining platinum certification in the UK, and 7 Brit award nominations, the trio have been named the UK’s most successful female act of the 21st century – and they will perform their biggest hits at the wonderful Ynysangharad War Memorial Park this July for your viewing pleasure.
Chart topping artist DJ Ironik will also take to the stage at Ponty’s Big Weekend on Saturday 18th July.
His debut album “No Point In Wasting Tears” is out now and includes the hit single “Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer),” as well as other favourites including “Stay With Me (Everybody’s Free),” “I Wanna Be Your Man” and “So Nice.”
In addition to being nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2008 MOBO Awards and Best Newcomer and Best Music Video with “Stay With Me” at the 2008 Urban Music Awards, this up and coming artist was voted in as the third favourite artist of the year in 2008 by the public viewers of MTV UK.
He has performed up and down the UK and in countries including Gambia, Greece and Sweden, and now it is the town of Pontypridd’s chance to see him live.
The girls truly are taking on Pontypridd on Saturday 18th July as tough-talking booty bass electro-rock chicks ‘Electrovamp’ also take to the stage for Ponty’s Big Weekend.
Kally and Tammy, two sassy sisters from Caerphilly, who supported Girls Aloud in 2005, are sure to get the crowd going with their ear-shatteringly vibrant, in-your-face tones.
This electropop duo have released two singles and are working on their first album, which as the girls explain “is a concept album which covers a weekend. The storyline runs all the way from meeting a guy on a Friday night right up until the hangover hits on the Sunday!”
Fans at Ponty’s Big Weekend are likely to recognise their second single “Drinks Taste Better When They're Free,” as it was the lead track from the blockbuster film “How To Lose Friends And Alienate People” starring Simon Pegg and Kirstin Dunst.
Alex Roots is a feisty 16 year old from the UK, whose incessant perky punk-pop will have fans screaming for more.
Alex has been co-writing and recording her first album 'Adrenaline Rush' since she was 14, and this magnificent collection of catchy songs is sure to get the crowds on their feet and dancing, as they were when she supported McFly in a recent concert.
This budding artist writes all her own songs and her music is very 80's influenced. Having been compared to Lene Lovich, Alex is a cross between the early-80s new wave quirk-pop of Hazel and Toyah and the present-day punk-pop of Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry.
All ABBA fans take notice as Bjorn Again take to the stage for Ponty’s Big Weekend.
Having recently been endorsed by ABBA’s blonde vocalist Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Again have achieved worldwide cult status and aim to continue performing ABBA songs the way the audience want to hear them, in a fun and energetic manner.
So if you enjoyed the musical/film feature of “Mamma Mia” you’ll love Bjorn Again, and their performance at this year’s Ponty’s Big Weekend on Saturday 18th July.
