Steelhouse Rock Festival
Ebbw Vale RFC would like to thank Steelhouse Rock Festival for their continued support as a club sponsor for the 2021/22 season. We appreciate the support towards the club in these difficult times.
Steelhouse Festival Directors, Matthew Rhead and Mike Evans say, ‘It’s with a great deal of excitement and pride to announce that, once again, The Steelhouse Festival is part of EVRFC’s sponsorship portfolio this season. Having both grown up in Ebbw Vale we are fully aware of the club’s rich history and understand how important it is to the community. The Steelhouse Festival itself has its roots firmly planted in the clubhouse having grown out of the live shows we originally put on in there…Quite simply, for us, having the Steelhouse logo on the jersey isn’t just an advertising opportunity, it’s a badge of honour.
Taking place at its unique mountain top location, looking out over the South Wales valleys from Hafod-Y-Dafal Farm just outside of Ebbw Vale, The Steelhouse Festival has built up a truly international following and a real heritage of over the course of 11 years. Legendary and contemporary rock icons including Thin Lizzy, Glenn Hughes, Myles Kennedy, Black Star Riders, The Wildhearts, Thunder, The Darkness, UFO, Uriah Heep, Europe, Rival Sons, Saxon, Dee Snider, Michael Schenker, Skindred and many more have made memorable appearances, whilst audience members have been welcomed from as far and wide as Australia, Japan and the USA. With a first-class production, locally-sourced vendors offering a wide range of food and award-winning beverages, on-site camping and glamping options, the Steelhouse Festival is now a staple of the European Summer Festival circuit and a Visit Wales, Major Events Unit-endorsed enterprise.
