The Big Gig is is returning to find the best bands in Cardiff and offer up some amazing prizes.
The Big Gig has always championed the rich and diverse Cardiff music scene, and this year is no different. Previous winners, The Moon Birds (pictured above) are a five-piece band from Merthyr Tydfil who won in 2016. They bought their eclectic mix of dirty blues, seething guitar lines and “drunk-funk” groove to Clwb Ifor Bach to claim the top spot
This year, the bands and artists who take part in the Big Gig are competing for £1000 worth of Shure kit from PMT to help them progress their careers. They can pick anything from the current range including in-ear monitoring systems such as the PSM300 Wireless Personal Monitor System with SE112 Earphones, PGADRUMKIT6 Drum Microphone Kit or the Super 55 Deluxe Vocal Microphone in Limited Edition Pitch Black. PMT will also be supplying Orange Amps Backline for the three gigs around Cardiff.
The winners will also receive rehearsal time at Musicbox Studios, one of Wales top practice rooms and recording studios. They will get the opportunity to work with top producer Charlie Francis (REM, Future Of The Left, Turin Brakes).
