Held on the Faenol estate from 1-3 June, the 5,000-capacity Kaya - meaning 'home' in the Zulu language - brings together some well-known musicians and DJs from a wide range of musical styles around the world.

Highlights include Lee Scratch Perry, Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club, Tinchy Stryder, Dele Sosimi, Snowboy and Dub Pistols.

They are joined by local acts including Drymbago, Banda Bacana, Latin Groove Collective, Tacsi, Sundance, EFA Supertramp, Sam Parsons, Two Man Ting, 25 Past The Skank, Mizizi and Folie Ordinaire.

Co-founder Thabani Nyoni said: "2012 is a great year to kick off our new festival, we are offering something a bit different to the local and UK festival crowd celebrating diversity, music and art in beautiful north Wales."
