Fe'i lleolir ar fferm hynafol rhwng gwreiddiau Mynyddoedd Cambrian godidog ac arfordir hardd bae Aberteifi, ar ddiwedd Ffordd y Mynydd o Aberystwyth i Rhaeadr Gwy.
We are located on an ancient farm between the foothills of the magnificent Cambrian Mountains and the beautiful coast of Cardigan bay, at the end of the Mountain Road from Aberystwyth to Rhayader.
INTRODUCE A SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT POLICY AND INCENTIVES Up to 90% of emissions for any event are from travel (Deliveries, Crew and Attendees).
Year 10 Festival, £10 off your Ticket! (if you choose a sustainable transport option). Anyone taking the Train, Coach or Cycling will get £10 cash back when they arrive on site. Don't drive.
Increase Parking Charges. Parking now £20 per vehicle. This covers the £7000 cost of facilitating cars and directly subsidises sustainable transport incentives
Cheap Coach We've halved the price of the coach, and will lay on a coach wherever there is demand, using a "Coach Ambassador" Scheme.
Carbon Off-Set Contractors, Crew and Traders to Carbon off-set. Drivers given the option.
Go Electric. Let us know in advance, we'll park and charge your EV for Free.
Cycle It's a beautiful and flat cycle ride from Aberystwyth. Put bags on shuttle and cycle. Details in "Travel" section.
Rent A Tent They are super cheap...
CARLESS FUTURE VISIONING If we organised regional bag drops from a network of vans to take your stuff to and from the festival, would you then be less likely to drive?
GO/CONTINUE TO BE PLASTIC FREE! We've banned all single use cutlery, cups, plates, glasses etc on site. All our traders and central kitchen use our enamel plates and bowls that are washed in our washing up station to be used again and again and again. Thank you to all our attendees in supporting this initiative, and to all the wonderful volunteers who totally owned "The Washing Up". We reduced our landfill by 90%.
ZERO WASTE: No one-use food or drink items - reusable plates, bowls, cutlery, pint glasses and coffee cups
Recycling Disco: We ask everyone to partake in our "Recycling Disco". You Bring It, You Bin It... but whilst we do, we are entitled to be entertained by bands and DJs... We're not hiding WASTE behind the scenes.... Your ticket includes £5 deposit for 20mins in the Recycling Disco - refundable after your shift. You can be a hedonist and forgo your time in the Recycling Disco, and your deposit will then pay for others to tidy up.
Music For Everyone: We are a festival put on by musicians for musicians. Bring instruments. Our focus in 2019 is YOU and US playing music... We will continue to create plenty of Jam Spaces. In 2019 the Travelling Barn will host sessions every night from midnight.
TRANSPARENCY: Our accounts are published online. We don't do this festival to get rich to buy shiney things we don't need. We do this to help the farm and help each other - we support local businesses, small independent businesses, startups, artists, musicians and traders. We are registered Not-For-Profit - we can not be bought or sold to any hedge fund or venture capitalists.
SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL: As E.F. Schumacher teaches, we will not grow the event. Our measure is our well-being and not our "profit".
