    This festival was conceived as something completely different – a cultural event in a small pastel-painted, Italian-style village with a castle in northwestern Wales … an event to take you away from the doldrums of daily reality. And it worked.

    Too well.

    This is the final year, apparently. Or at least till organizers can figure out how to scale-up the festival. They announced they’re “taking a break” after this year, but the message announcing this doesn’t have any details if, when or where Festival No. 6 will resume. So, if you want to experience this quirky event, this year from 7 to 9 September might be your last chance.

    This is a festival with a crazy mashup of music, ranging from Franz Ferdinand to Horse Meat Disco. We count at least 60 musical acts from headliners to “who?” You’ll be relieved to know the Brythoniaid Welsh Male Voice Chorus will be there for what could be the final event.

    You can see the full lineup here.

    This is a family affair, so of course, there will be a kids’ rave and lots of kids events including romps in the woods. And it’s about more than music, with artists and authors. Entry starts at about 200 pounds and you can get the few remaining tickets here, but we wouldn’t dally at this late date.
