The Green Gathering
A four day festival with a focus on low impact living. Intimate solar stages provide the perfect place for up and coming acts, legendary favourites, poets and spellbinding raconteurs.
Every nook and corner of the festival is bursting with creativity, there's also magicians and mystics… off grid solutions and co-operatives… crafts, permaculture, tipis, campaigns, healing… kids’ activities and teen spaces… a stone circle, open mic spaces and dance workshops… affordable bars and ethical eats.
A festival of Wales, its language and culture. Annually the National Eisteddfod takes place for eight days at the start of August, and the central festival field is a vibrant one, teeming with stands, stalls and shops, food, music, arts and crafts, design and architecture. The 2019 Eisteddfod will be held in Llanrwst, Conwy County.
This wonderful family-friendly festival takes place on the Glanusk Estate in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, and features far more than just great music.
