DEPOT Live have just announced headliner for Cardiff Castle gig

DEPOT Live

Norwegian synth-pop band a-ha will join the iconic list of acts confirmed to headline at Cardiff Castle this summer.

Founded by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, Magne Furuholmen, and Morten Harket, a-ha rose to fame during the mid-1980s and achieved their biggest success with their debut album ‘Hunting High and Low’ in 1985. Their incredibly catchy tune ‘Take on Me’ is still considered one of the greatest pop songs ever made.

Norwegian synth-pop band a-ha will join the iconic list of acts confirmed to headline at Cardiff Castle this summer.

In late October 2019, a-ha began a world-wide tour, playing their debut album in full. But due to the unprecedented events that followed, after performing in Auckland, New Zealand in March 2020, the pandemic meant that the remaining 29 dates the tour had to be put on hold.

Now, in 2022, a-ha are picking up from where they left off. They have added new shows in America, Norway, Spain and the UK – where a-ha will headline at Cardiff Castle on Tuesday 5th July 2022.

A-ha have been brought to Cardiff by DEPOT Live, the live-events arm of The DEPOT – one of Cardiff’s most successful events venues. DEPOT Live has previously announced Madness as a castle headliner on Wednesday 1st June; Defected (with Gorgon City headlining) on 2nd July; Pete Tong and his 55-piece orchestra will take to the stage on Friday 8th July. Finally, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man will headline the DEPOT in the Castle one-day festival on Saturday 9th July.

Pre-sale tickets for a-ha at Cardiff Castle will go on sale Wednesday 23rd March at 9am.

General tickets will go on sale on Friday 25th March at 9am
