Lazy Habits

  • Cardigan - fforest rivers edge
lazy habits 1.jpg

Filled with ‘aggressively pounding beats and brass’ (Altsounds) alongside slick lyrics about modern British life, Lazy Habits master infectious hooks and clever arrangements, making their stage show the benchmark others aim for and are one of the tightest and most powerful live performances in the UK. They haven’t just racked up a cult following at home though, with the band returning fresh from a string of sold out dates in Asia, where they are famed for collaborating with Asian superstar rapper Dwagie’s alongside US rap heavyweight DJ Premier.

With everything going their way, these new shows will be anything but lazy for the Habits as they put on a colossal live experience, one that stays with you long after you’ve left the venue.

Supported by Fjorka and Rye Milligan, the event will be full of spring fun, fire, beer, a great atmosphere and powerful live acts.

Barley Saturday / Sadwrn Barlys

  • Cardigan Town

A wonderful annual event to show case the finest local horses, they are judged in the morning and paraded through the town in the afternoon. Also in the parade is a great selection of vintage farm machinery and vehicles, plus plenty of flat caps!

The parade dates back to 1871 when it was a celebration of the end of the spring sowing season, with barley being the last cereal to be sown, after the wheat and oats.

It’s a special day of the year in Cardigan town.
