Megaday No 14 Venue: Caerphilly RFC – Total Raised £21,500
Megaday 2008 was headlined by 4th Street Traffic, a band who had won the Megaday
Battle of the Bands competition two years earlier. This was the first year ever that
it rained on Megaday Sunday, but it didn’t dampen spirits with nearly 2000 people
attending. It actually improved the atmosphere as everyone packed into the marquee
to shelter from the rain.
We tried a new format for Megaday Saturday night and invited bands who played originals
(their own songs) to show case their talent outdoors on the main Megaday stage. It
turned out to be a very popular night and a great success.
