Megaday No 11 - Venue: Caerphilly RFC – Total Raised £18,898
2005 was the 10th anniversary of Megaday – To celebrate, we organised a large professional
fireworks display finale, and packed the line up with the most popular acts around.
Baggy trousers the Madness tribute band had been so brilliant the previous year,
but unfortunately their set was unexpectedly cut short. So they were invited back
again to headline Megaday 2005 and finish the job off properly, it was a great night
and a huge success raising nearly £19k.
After the success of the previous year, the second Battle of the Bands competition
was held, nine bands entered and it was eventually won by Zenyth.
Aside from Megaday, there was a large Tsunami that occurred in the Indian Ocean on
boxing day, killing over 230,000 people, six Megaday bands touched by what they had
seen, got together and put on an extra event, raising over £1000 for the Tsunami
