A four-day ‘mini version of Glastonbury’ will take place in Mynyddcerrig this year.

Mynyddfest will be the first live music festival ever in Mynyddcerrig and run from July 11 to July 14.

The event will feature a range of local artists, bands and musicians along with an open mic competition where the winner can win back the cost of their ticket.

Ticket holders will also be entitled to participate in various workshops including inner dance, sound bath, Shamanic journey, and a free music workshop for anyone wanting to play an instrument for the first time.

Kathy Sanderson of Awakened Gatherings Ltd said: “We are so excited to bring this amazing festival to Mynyddcerrig, to be able to showcase local talent and businesses and to bring happiness and joy to all. I love that we are opening our live music with Samba Doc which is just going to bring those beautiful festival vibes.

“We are a small intimate festival which makes it ideal for those, like my children, who struggle in large crowds too, as well as increasing the community feel, which is what we are all about, oh and you can camp with us for free too! We have so much to offer, there is something for everyone!"

“There is, live music from folk to metal, healing workshops, music workshops, kids’ entertainment, forest school, alternative therapies, stalls from local artisans and alternative therapists.

“You'll be kept busy all 4 days if that's what you choose, or you can just sit back and enjoy listening to the sounds around you. For those who fancy some peace and quiet you can also escape into the woods at the festival too and just reconnect with nature.”

Awakened Gatherings are partnered with Wheelhouse Audio Events, and both want to provide opportunities for local businesses and charities.

“After a chance stumble across Kathy’s page, I was interested in seeing the land with a view to holding a small music festival on the stunning land,” revealed Lee Morris from Wheelhouse Audio Events.

“We got together and started planning, we wanted it to be something for everyone like a very mini version of Glastonbury, and so Mynyddfest was born.”

The confirmed acts so far include Samba Doc, DJ S Drop, Nathen Jones, Brad Mead, Gemma Krysa, Chris Keys, Riki Buckingham, Mark Oriel, Haast from Cardiff, Nat Evans and more.

Gemma said: “I’m especially excited to be asked to play at the first Mynyddfest. Fantastic line up, sharing the stage with some great musicians. Can’t wait!”

Tickets cost £114 for adults and £60 for children (4-15 years old)
