The Hamilton Eisteddfod is an annual event held at the Performing Arts Centre in Hamilton and offers a platform for musicians to perform before a live audience.
What sets this event apart from other music festivals is the fact that in addition to music and dance, the artists have their performances judged by a panel of professionals in their specific artistic fields.
