14th February 2018

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil will be headlining a number of festivals with his chart-topping band Catfish and the Bottlemen this summer.

Rob Hall, who left the school in 2011, is a drummer with the Llandudno four-piece and they are set for another extremely busy few months ahead of one of the busiest times for the music industry.

They will begin at Victoria Park in London on Friday June 1, where they will headline the All Points East Festival, with Blossoms, The Hunna, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, The Neighbourhood, and The Amazons also performing at the event.

This will be swiftly followed by a trip to the continent to perform at BENICÁSSIM alongside the likes of Liam Gallagher and The Killers, and the Bottlemen will also be taking the stage at the star-studded Lollapalooza Paris.

The Brit Award winners will be headlining Kendal Calling on Friday, July 27 and the Y Not Festival in Derbyshire on Saturday 28, with another headline slot booked at the Boardmasters Surf and Music Festival in Cornwall from August 8-12.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “We continue to be amazed with what Rob is accomplishing with Catfish and the Bottlemen, and to be headlining so many high-profile festivals this summer just shows how far they have come in a relatively short space of time.”
