Student-orientated music festival Beach Break Live is back in Wales this year, and has today announced its biggest-ever line-up of music acts, including some up-and-coming Welsh bands.

Held at Pembrey Country Park in Carmarthenshire on 14-18 June, Beach Break has established itself as one of Wales' major events, despite some opposition from local residents.

Beach Break founder Celia Norowzian told us: "We're so excited to be returning to Wales for our third year.

"To us, Pembrey truly is the most perfect and beautiful festival location in the UK. Aside from how gorgeous it is, the incredible support from the local and wider community is one of the best things about running this festival.

"Our final artists have now been added to the bill and the reaction has been even bigger than we hoped. We already can't wait to get back to Pembrey and get started."
