On Friday August 12th, the global phenomenon that is Years & Years, entertained thousands in Cardiff's Coopers Field, for Party In The Parc (in association with Pride Cymru.
We had the pleasure of attending the show and meeting the lads just ahead of their sound check, Nathan also presented frontman Olly Alexander with his portrait using rainbow glitter.
W&W - Hi guys
Olly - OMG are you Nathan? This is so cool! You did the pizza art for me right?
W&W - Yes! Thanks so much for sharing it and this is for you to keep!
Olly - Oh wow, I'm actually going to give it to Emru, no I'm just kidding I'm going to keep it!

The rest of the chat was off camera*
W&W - thank you so much for agreeing to come to Cardiff for this event and help support Pride Cymru - it's fantastic for our city! How does it feel to be back in Wales?
Olly - It feels amazing to be back in Wales, I have so many fond memories going to school here and the people are always so amazing!!
W&W - What can we expect from the show tonight?
Olly - more than anything we always just try to have a good time - as its Pride weekend here you can obviously expect a little glitter, and a party!
W&W - Well I think it's fair to say we all love glitter! Thanks for your time and we can't wait to see the show!!
*Our friends over at Wales Online were also with us and managed to get a few other Q's with the band, see below some quotes from Olly*
“10 years ago as a student at Monmouth School I was too afraid to come out. Who would have thought 10 years on I'd be headlining Pride Cymru. We've come a long way but still have a long way to go."
“Pride Cymru is an essential organisation that provides crucial support for the LGBT community and we're so thrilled we got to play at their party."
