John Lennon’s sister will be the first person ever to be honoured as the Day President for Llanfest, the finale day of the International Eisteddfod.
There has been a long tradition of Day Presidents being honoured at the week-long Eisteddfod. Day Presidents are invited to the event to recognise the ongoing work they do in spreading the message of peace and goodwill, which is at the heart of the event.
Llanfest is the final Sunday of the festival and has evolved into a modern mix of rock, pop and indie music, including bands such as the Manic Street Preachers and this year’s headliners, indie-pop legends the Kaiser Chiefs.
Julia Baird will be joining Liverpool’s iconic The Cavern Club at Llanfest on July 8, which is hosting a special pop up stage for the first time; bringing their resident musicians to Llangollen.
