Megaday is an extremely enjoyable music event held annually in the town of Caerphilly
South Wales to help raise funds for the Velindre Cancer Centre.
This highly successful festival will be held for the 24th time since 1995. Megaday
constantly attracts huge audiences and has previously won backing from the likes
of the Manic Street Preachers, the Stereophonics, Catatonia and the GLC.
Megaday started in 1995 by the people of Caerphilly as a tribute to a close friend
and fellow musician Andrew Nichols (nicknamed Mega) who sadly lost his battle with
cancer. In 2001, we also tragically lost Paul Grahame (nicknamed PG), one of the
key Megaday organisers who had also been battling with cancer.
All of those who have attended before will know that it’s about raising as much money
as possible for the Velindre Cancer Centre whilst having a great time doing it.
All profits made from Megaday go to the Velindre Cancer Centre (Wales) where Andrew
and Paul were treated. The money goes towards cancer research and patient care. Over
the years, Megaday has raised over £330,000 for Velindre Cancer Centre, an achievement
all who are involved with Megaday are very proud of.
