The full line up for the 2015 Young Peoples Village at Builth Wells has been announced by Wales YFC.
The Young Peoples Village, sponsored by Harper Adams University, is an event that takes place during the week of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, and will see more than 15,000 partygoers descend upon the entertainment and camping site.

No YPV line-up would be complete without a Radio 1 DJ and this year the line up boasts of two! On Monday night Danny Howard will play his renowned ‘Dance Anthems’ to the YPV crowd and the Squatters and the Futuristic Polar Bears will complete the line up.
On the Tuesday night (22nd July) Matt Edmondson who is new to the YPV will be delivering a DJ set to thousands of partiers. Also performing will be Yws Gwynedd, and from the Voice Liss Jones to complete the talent show line up Jay James who found fame courtesy of the X Factor will perform.
You’ll be needing your shades at the ready for the big Wednesday night ‘Beach Party’! Delyth McLean, one of the most recent additions to the Welsh musical landscape will kick us off and will be joined by Luke Friend from the X Factor along with Clara Amfo. Claosing the weeks entertainment will be an alternative pop-rock band form the sleepy suburbs of South and South West Wales, the UK’s number one Rock and Pop covers band and YPV favourites; The Chip Shop Boys.
