Earlier this week the main act Basement Jaxx announced they were pulling out of the festival which is being held at Splott Warehouse on Saturday, August 27th.

Over 3,000 tickets have been sold for this year’s event, say organisers.

The new line up on offer includes Chris Lorenzo, SKT, The Golden Boy, R3Wire & Varski, Dilinja, Mampi Swift and Mollie Collins.

Our main priority is the people who come to The Color Festival every year and help it to be as successful as it is. We are all about having a good time, and that is what we want for all those that will be there this Saturday.

Students and graduates from the University of South Wales have developed and made a dragon as part of a Welsh advertising campaign.

They used this model, seen at Caerphilly Castle, as a basis for their design. The advert sees the creature fly from Caerphilly to Chepstow, Cardiff Bay, Harlech Castle, and then finally, landing at Caernarfon Castle.

The students say it's been an exciting project to be involved with, and hope it will showcase their talent.
