It's an international folk festival featuring some of the best american, english and celtic old-time and contemporary acts, with an emphasis on great food and better beer. The site is bloody amazing, and I'm off next week to go and help get it ready for the weekend of 1-4 June. Why don't you come!

Welsh Culture Day
Bank Holiday Monday features a farmers and local crafts market. We also feature a host of Welsh folk bands on the main stage, with Headliners Calan.
We are providing the best in locally sourced and prepared food at the festival. There will be a breakfast bar serving sausages from the farm 8 – 11am. Our central kitchen will provide lunch and a big communal dinner every night, so everyone eats together! There will be fresh pizza, bread and pastries available from our newly built traditional cob ovens around the clock. All food is reasonably priced and ethically sourced, with minimal packaging. We emplore you to eat food on site to help cut down on waste and food miles.
There are two camping areas: Quiet and Family camping in the main paddock, near to car park, and Adventure Camping (short walk from main gate). The camping field opens to the public at noon on Thursday 31st May, and closes to the public on Wednesday 6th June at noon. Access to the main site is from Friday 5pm until noon on Tuesday 5th June.
We are pioneering the latest designs in Composting Loos.
The farm is in remote mid-Wales, in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. We highly recommend bringing good solid footwear and good quality rain clothes, in addition to sun cream.
Travel and Parking
It will cost £5 per car to park, and £10 per Camper Van/Caravan. This is because space is limited and we want to encourage people to car share and take alternative public transport.
Shuttles will meet EVERY train coming to Aberystwyth Friday and Saturday, and again, shuttles will run to meet every train Monday and Tuesday at no cost.
We have a car sharing site set up and ready to use here:
