Event Details

Captain Accident and The Disasters are back! After a sell-out gig at the Brewery back in August 2019, we thought it was about time that we brought them and their reggae groove back to Tyriet.

** £12 EARLYBIRD TICKETS AVAILABLE UNTIL 31ST MARCH **

// From 1st April, tickets will be £15 //

Saturday 10th August 2024 | Doors will open at 6.30pm

Captain Accident will be supported by Nathan Stardust Jones, Vinyl DJ. 

Captain Accident is a reggae/ska/soul artist who creates a unique blend of rock-driven soulful roots reggae, ska, dub and rocksteady at his home studio in Cardiff. This sound is then brought to life on stage with the help of a collective of the finest musicians for an energetic live show guaranteed to get people up dancing. With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly infectious groove, there’s no standing still when Captain Accident and his clumsy companions hit the stage.

Captain Accident and The Disasters were hand-picked to join reggae heroes Toots & the Maytals for a run of dates on their 2016 UK tour. After impressing the reggae legends, their fans and their agency, the band were then invited back out as full-tour support in 2017 and 2018, taking them to some of the UK’s most prestigious venues including London Barbican Theatre, Brighton Dome, Manchester Academy, Nottingham Rock City and more. During Toots’ 2017 “Bands in the Sands” appearance, the Captain was asked to join the band onstage to perform Monkey Man on guitar! The band were then asked to go on a full European tour with Toots & the Maytals in 2020 but this
was postponed due to covid 19 and subsequently cancelled following the death of Toots Hibbert. As well as Toots & the Maytals, CA & the D have shared a stage with many of the biggest names in reggae & ska including: Suggs (who recently jumped on stage to sing with the band!),
Alborosie, Less Than Jake, Aswad, The Skints, The Skatalites, Bad Manners, The Toasters, Neville Staple (The Specials), Fishbone, David Rodigan and countless others. They have become a staple part of the UK festival circuit, appearing at Glastonbury, Wilderness, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair and several others.

The finer details:
– Once you have bought tickets you will receive an email with a QR code for your tickets. We will also have your name on the door, you will not receive a physical ticket for this event.
– Children are welcome at this event but they will need their own ticket. Our license covers the number of people inside the premises regardless of age. We’re very sorry but if we sell out and you arrive with Children who don’t have tickets, we will not be allowed to let them in. Our license is at risk if we go over our capacity.
– Food will be available on the night from a local caterer TBC* (including a vegetarian option!)
– Parking is available in our field just next to the Brewery. You’re welcome to leave the car overnight and come back for it the next day.
– Limited seating available, this is a predominantly standing/dancing gig. We ask that you don’t bring your own chairs to the venue, thank you.
– This event is not suitable for dogs, it will be very busy and noisy and we ask that you leave them at home for this one
– Local taxi firm Home James Taxis will be available to help you get home, but we suggest booking in advance as it could be very busy!
– We are an open air venue. We do have a large stretch tent and heaters, but we recommend that you dress for the outdoors.
– We do have a card machine but we’re not able to offer cashback & signal is sometimes unreliable, it’s best to bring cash for the bar

CAMPING: Overnight camping (for the night of the gig only – arrival from 5.30pm) available in the field next door to the brewery. £5 per tent/campervan payable in cash on arrival at the Brewery. No need to pre-book.
