Yes, you read that correctly. In a surprise announcement (at least to us here at The Ocelot) Welsh indie-rock legends Stereophonics will be performing at the Oasis Leisure Centre in Swindon on July 26.

Formed in 1992 in the village of Cwmaman in Cynon Valley, Stereophonics are an internationally renowned phenomenon, and in 2008 became the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums (after the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2).

The band have also been praised for their live performances, which have landed them headlining slots at many of the UK and Ireland’s most high-profile music festivals, including Reading and Leeds in 2000, Glastonbury in 2002, V festival in 2002, the Isle of Wight in 2004 and 2009, and Oxegen in 2010.

This special performance in Swindon will be a warm-up show for another set of festival dates including Y Not Festival in Pikehall, Derbyshire and Kendal Calling. Catch them before they head off into the festival sunset.
