NEWS: LLangollen Fringe Festival celebrate 25th anniversary with bill including Roger Eno, The Turbans, Warmduscher, Ebony Steel Band

Llangollen Fringe Festival will this year celebrate its 25th anniversary, with a bumper edition of the town festival, from the 22nd to the 30th July, which promises to be the biggest yet!
Headlining acts announced include: Roger Eno– a renowned composer, pianist and pioneer of ‘ambient music’, Roger Eno has recorded and released many albums of his work, including APOLLO in 1983 a collaboration with his brother Brian Eno as well as 2020’s Mixing Colours, the duo’s striking collaboration, released in 2020. For the Fringe Festival, Roger Eno will perform music from these works and his most recent solo album The Turning Year.

Joining Roger Eno at the festival are; International legends The Turbans, with members from Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Greece and England who bind together music from ‘manywhere’ whom BBC 6 Music’s Mark Radcliffe described as “really a force of nature”, rocking supergroup Warmduscher, who bring together members of bands such as: Fat White Family and Insecure Many and have been selling out venues across the UK and Europe with their incendiary live show. Rounding off the week are the ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, instantly enthralling, supercharged Scottish trad trio Talisk on Friday 29th and London’s Ebony Steel Band  on Saturday 30th, the legendary Steel Drum ensemble perform their much-loved album Pan Machine, a hugely entertaining interpretation of the classic Kraftwerk album Man Machine in its entirety, which includes seminal hits such as ‘The Model’ and ‘The Robots”
There is also a welcome return for stand-up comedy – with ‘The Chase’ star Paul Sinha headlining the opening night of the festival, as well as new venues being incorporated into the official festival line up with Gales Wine Bar, The Bridge End Hotel and the Three Eagles Restaurant hosting live events throughout the week with even more events to celebrate the 25th year, still to be added.

Llangollen Fringe Festival will take place 22nd to the 30th of July. Tickets for all headline shows are on sale now, as well as Festival passes. Priced at just £75 the festival pass allows access to all of the main events across the nine days so is great value for money.
