Steelhouse Festival


It’s been 6 years since the Welsh hills first came alive with the sound of Classic Rock. And like the towering, solid piece of stone it’s perched on, the Steelhouse Festival stands resolute – a seemingly immovable object on the festival landscape. Steelhouse 2016 looks set to be the biggest and best yet with rock soldiers from far and wide making the uphill ascent for a bill that mixes the classic and the contemporary and is as breathtaking as the location itself.

Officially the UK’s highest music festival, this unique event will once again be held in the spectacular surroundings of Hafod-y-Dafal Farm situated on the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons.

Aiming to be the UK’s best value rock festival where families and friends can rock out at a price that won’t clear out the holiday kitty, the event has built up a loyal following and a real heritage over six successful years. Classic rock cornerstones such as THUNDER, THE DARKNESS, UFO, EUROPE, BLACKSTAR RIDERS, SAXON, MICHAEL SCHENKER, SEBASTIAN BACH, DEE SNIDER and more have all etched their names into Steelhouse history.
