Established in 2004 , the Porthcawl Elvis Festival has grown to be the biggest event of its kind in the world, with an estimated 40,000 people attending. www.elvies.co.uk The event was built around The Elvies Award Show which remains the highlight of the Festival.

The Porthcawl Elvis Festival has always supported and celebrated diversity. Accordingly we are proud to announce that this year, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the Porthcawl Elvis Festival is presenting an award for an LGBTQ Elvis Tribute. We are delighted to celebrate James Haslam for his act, Elberace: A Hunk of Mincing Love.
