The Celtic Blue Rock Community Arts Festival (known as Blue Rock to locals) is a charity-based festival showcasing local bands, craftsmen and stalls in Llanfyrnach, Wales. From small beginnings in 2004, it has grown to be an annual event attracting 10,000 people.[1]

The festival made the news in 2010 when it was cancelled after it lost its licence due to safety concerns.[1][2]

Performers included former Hawkwind band member Nik Turner, Thunder Chair, Johnny Action Finger, Session Head, Quantum Beats and The Measurements Group, as well as a number of local bands performing Dance, Trance and Drum and Bass.
