Come to Ymuno – 1-3 July
I’ve never slept in a tent, or been to a festival. I have a feeling the former is going to be a horrible experience, but for the sake of the latter I am doing it a few times this year. There are some wonderful little festivals all over the UK with some putting on many exciting things for kids as well as the staple music show.
Others just look simply lovely and luckily one of those is fairly close to me - Ymuno Festival in beautiful Abergele, North Wales. Run by a cooperative not for profit gives the venture a good feel. The ticket price includes folk, funk, camping and breakfast! What more do you need? Oh yeah, excellent vegy food from No Bones Jones and good company.
Ymuno is an intimate festival with tickets sales stopping at 450 and they’re selling fast, so you’ve not got long to go grab a ticket! And you can come laugh at me learning the camping thing if you like. I’m sure I’ll be laughing at myself in-between dancing to great music (or drunk in a corner somewhere). Honeyfeet look particularly fun!
From the site: The word “ymuno” means “to join in” or “to be a part of” in Welsh, and was chosen by the organisers to fit in with the community based theme of the festival. – Byddaf gweld chi yno
Full line up here and an intro below to the lovely John Smith. Enjoy.
