Vehicular Transportation is the largest cause of greenhouse gas emissions for any event or festival, often accounting for 80-90% of total emissions. There is a climate emergency and we all must act. We are launching a 5 year plan to reduce car and van use to all but the most essential vehicles, all of which will eventually have to off-set. It's bold, it's brave, it's undoubtedly going to be unpopular to some, but we'll do our best.

Be A Coach Ambassador: if you can get 10 or more people together from your location, we will send you a cheap (cost price) coach or minibus. Take the stress out of the journey... enjoy the view, start the party early, let someone else do the driving! We are teaming up with a festival coach supplier to organise our travel... Contact Us.
We've halved the price of the shuttle from Aberystwyth Train Station to site (subsidised from parking charges). Time table will appear here soon, but should meet every train.
We are not running the organised cycle rides this year, but still recommend the beautiful (and flat!) ride along the cycle paths by the Ystwyth River from Aberystwyth to the festival site. You can still dump your bags on the shuttle and cycle the 10 miles to the festival
£20 Weekend Car Parking Charge. It costs us over £7000 to facilitate cars and vans; Stewards and Parking Marshalls, extra security, renting a field, and all that expensive, heavy and horrid to handle temporary road matting. We need to cover those costs and will use anything left to subsidise sustainable transport incentives. We are a remote event for a lot of people, and will do our best to provide affordable and easy options to anyone, anywhere. We will see how this pilot year goes, but we are likely to increase parking year on year to help everyone go green. Driving a car should be a luxury, not a necessity.
There are two camping areas: in the main field close to the canvas courtyard and Adventure Camping (short walk from main gate).
Traditional Canvas Bell Tents available for hire either Furnished or unfurnished. Bell tents will be pitched ready for your arrival in one of the sites beautiful meadows on the banks of a stream, with ample shade and access to facilities.
The prices below are just for the hire of the tent, and don't include your tickets. It's advisable to contact David from Great British Glamping direct, then you don't pay a booking fee.Fully Furnished Couples Bell Tent (4m, Tent for 2) £326
As well as the vast natural playground of woodland, hills and streams, we have a varied programme of interactive activities and entertainment for all ages. We’ll be based in the colourful marquees opposite the Travelling Barn stage. Details of the 2022 programme will be published in April
ALL FOOD IS SERVED ON REUSABLE METAL PLATES AND TIN CUPS!!!!
We have gone a step further to eliminate plastic waste by only ordering milk in reusable returnable glass bottles... the oldest things are sometimes the best things....
Our bars are run an Ale and Cider Festival, with a massive selection of locally sourced Ales and Ciders.
Facilities we do provide: Accessible camping and parking at top of camping field and accessible toilet facilities. What we can't provide; Accessible Showers. Most of the main site is on flat ground with some uneven surfaces which are slippy when muddy. We try our best to improve the ground under these circumstances. The courtyard by the main stage is quite stoney but wheelchair is accessible. The Dingly Dell, Healing Area and Workshop Tent are down a sloped track which is best avoided when muddy. Stewards will be patrolling regularly and can provide information and assistance. The festival is held on an old farm, and we do our best.
We welcome our furry friends but dogs must be kept on a lead and under control at all times. Poop must be scooped straight away and disposed of responsibly in the area provided. There are lots of animals, children and other dogs at the festival and we want everyone to feel safe. There are plenty of great walking areas bordering the site. Please be aware that you will be asked to leave the festival if you don't comply with this and we don't really want to have to do that. Lastly, due to the presence of livestock in adjoining fields, we recommend you remain vigilant at all times, as farmers do not take kindly to distress to their livestock.
This is not a pop up tent and can of Tuborg festival: the farm is in remote mid-Wales, in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. We recommend you bring a good quality tent, something warm to sleep on and in, sturdy boots with ankle support, waterproof bottoms and tops, a torch, sun cream, your swimwear, and an instrument.

Question: "My tickets for the festival have not arrived in the post - where are they?!"
Answer: FFire in the Mountain runs a paperless ticketing system. Tickets are not sent out - you will be emailed an eTicket on 1st May 2022 It contains your unique ticket code.
If you did not receive the eTicket email please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Question: "I only want to come for two days and camp one night, can you make me a special ticket for this?"
Answer: Very Sorry but NO. We are a very small festival, and we like being a very small festival. Camping space is limited on site. If you want to camp, then you need to buy a weekend ticket. However, we are doing day tickets just for the Sunday of the festival. These tickets are available from the box office on Sunday 5th June from 9am and cost £40 (kids under 13 free on Sunday)
Question: "I'm a festival veteran, and back in the day, all festivals were free and I could rock up and set up my soundsystem, party all weekend for all hours, and cook up a vege curry to sell in order cover the diesel costs for my massive live in a bus. Are you guys just capitalists?"
Answer: Since the days of the peace convoy and castlemorton, much legislation has been passed curtailing and controlling outdoor events. Whilst we hold dear the ethos of the free festival movement, we are legally bound to provide certain facilities and infrastructure necessary to hold a safe and accessible event for everyone. We aspire to become a sustainable, local, family friendly annual event, and to strike the right balance between the impact of the event on our neighbours and the surrounding community, involvement and enrichment of the local economy, and to provide a safe space for the creative endeavours of our bands, participants and audience. Any profit made by the festival have to be, by our constitution, reinvested into the farm on which it is held, and to improve the event for future years.
Question: Where does my money go?
