The concert showcased a variety of style and sounds with their catalogue of hits and anthems.

Caerphilly Castle, which is Britain’s second largest surviving castle has a breath-taking effect.

The layout works perfectly for a live concert and has a very spacious feel.

Although Groove Armada’s roots lay in 1997, it was 1999 when they really hit the mainstream, with well-polished dance hits which very much established themselves in the dance music/rave scene.

They really got down to business, with a play and just kept playing attitude.

Like a good movie, that’s edited just right, the 90-minute set worked very well.
