DEPOT IN THE CASTLE returns for a feast of live music and street food!

We’re back, and bigger than ever! With the weather heating up, and the Cardiff look B-E-A-Utiful in the sunshine, it’s got us all in the office super excited about DEPOT in the Castle. We’ve been chatting about all the exciting things that will be happening, and have compiled a top 5 ‘musts’ for the big day. Check them below…

1. Get a picture with the DEPOT sign


It’s big, it’s shiny, and it’s a photo opp! The DEPOT sign made its debut last year in the park, and we can’t wait to get it back out again. We have a fantastic team of designers who have been working tirelessly to ensure the inside of Cardiff Castle’s wall are fit for anyone’s Instagram feed. We’ll be sticking with the same garden vibes we had last year, so you can get ready for rainbow coloured flags, cute sheds, garden gnomes and heaps of added extras.

2. Get some of our LEGENDARY street food in you!


We’ve got together quite a repertoire of street food traders over the years, and we’re committed to bringing you only the best around for our favourite day of the year. With such a huge range of traders to choose from, we guarantee that you’ll be spoilt for choice when your belly starts to rumble. On the day you can expect to see That Fish Guy, The Pork Society, Mr. Croquewich, Ffwrnes, Brother Thai, Feed Hot Dog, Sri-Licious, Dirty Bird, Tukka Tuk, Persian Kitchen and The Taco Shed.



If you can’t get fabulousat a festival in a castle, then when can you? We can’t wait to welcome Dizzy Pineapple back four round two. Zoe and Daneka will be fulfilling all of your glittery needs throughout the day, so be sure to keep an eye out for them (they’ll be hard to miss!). And as if that wasn’t enough fun! You’ll have the opportunity to let loose your inner super model with Daisy’s Dressing Up Box. Dive into a magic box full of vintage clothing, whacky wigs and props galore, then get yourself a photo in your glad rags for keepsakes.

4.  Have a bop!


We’ve only gone and booked some of the biggest acts Cardiff has ever seen! With THE FRATELLIS, SISTER SLEDGE, THE HACKNEY COLLIERY BAND and the disco sensation FLEETMAC WOOD on our lineup, there’s no reason you shouldn’t get your dancing shoes on! We also have a special guest to be announced… so keep your eyes peeled for that!


5. This one’s for the little people…


We want DEPOT IN THE CASTLE to be for everyone, not matter how old, or young you are. That’s why we’ve made sure there’s things to keep your young’ens entertained. We’ll have The Circus Workshop Balloon Modelling creating anything you can think up on the spot, face painting, mask making AND a sweetie shop. Plenty to keep the sprogs entertained whilst mummy and daddy slink of for drink (or two)!
