Weekends away 2014: Wales Goes Pop!

Restarting our occasional series of plugs and previews for lesser known festivals and extended events:

WHAT? An all-ages Easter weekend scan of the indiepop high rollers and associates

WHERE? The Gate, Cardiff

WHEN? 18th-20th April

WHY? Smartly booked in an appropriately small-scale grand setting, the first WGP! last year was a joyous occasion, as these things tend to be in the post-Indietracks sphere, and it shows how far those particular stylistic tentacles can reach.

HOW? £40 from Spillers in Cardiff, Diverse Records in Newport or online

WHO? (or at least the best of those playing)
FRIDAY: Helen Love (their first hometown gig in quite some years), September Girls, The Magic Theatre, Flowers, Seazoo, Young Romance

SATURDAY: The Wedding Present, Radstewart, The School, The Proper Ornaments, Steven James Adams

SUNDAY: Withered Hand, Laetitia Sadier, Sweet Baboo, Haiku Salut, Woodpigeon, Owl & Mouse, Rozi Plain
