There's no point hanging around! We've had our AGM, we've got some exciting changes planned and we're ready to sell tickets for next year. What's more, due to the fact that we are a volunteer led and run organisation, we have managed to REDUCE ticket prices for 2017! We are participatory - and thus still need people to help in order to cut costs and make this a truely community run event.
We've also introduced a deposit system so you can reserve your ticket now... however, "reserved" tickets will then be charged at full price down the line (£100 all inclusive of any "hidden" fees and with an additional £5 recycling deposit...)
Locals Tickets will again be sold in Andy's Records in Aberystwyth - if you're local enough to go there in person, you're local enough for a local ticket! The physical tickets are being printed at the moment and will be on sale from Monday 21st November. These tickets can only be bought in person - he does not do phone orders! Whilst there, we love the idea of supporting your local record store and buying an album rather than lining the off-shore tax dodging pockets of Am*zon

Week Long Family Camping
For the first time we are offering a camping option before the Fire In The Mountain gathering begins. We would like to invite families to come and enjoy and explore the area. We are surrounded by woodland, mountains, castles and wonderful hidden treasures of Wales.
Check the visit Wales website http://www.visitwales.com/explore/mid-wales/brecon-beacons for ideas on where to go. We are situated about 8 miles from Aberystwyth and the glorious coastline as well as a day trip away from Snowdonia or the Brecon Beacons. Arrivals from Saturday 27th May mid-day. Camping will be in certain areas only (you will receive a map) as we will be busy getting ready for the festival.
There will be water, toilets, suana and showers but no food or drinks available to purchase until Thursday 1st June in the evening. The travelling barn will be erected and provide a meeting point as well as a dry, comfortable space to hang out. The early arrival camping tickets are £80 per family (maximum 2 "dwellings" ; either tents or campervans) and there will be no electric hookup or other electric facilities available.
YOU MUST HOLD VALID FESTIVAL TICKETS IN ORDER TO PURCHASE THE EARLY ARRIVAL OPTION
2016 is the hottest year globally on record. Neoliberalism is failing the people and The Right are on the ascendency across the world. This is our chance to get together - the traditional purpose and definition of a "festival" - and be the change we want to see. We must connect, support, nurture, expand and invigorate our networks and make a positive impact locally, nationally and internationally. We must communicate and celebrate all that we hold dear in the world; Tolerance, Respect, Low Impact Living, Compassion, Understanding and COMMUNITY. And last but not least, all this in some proper beautiful Welsh countryside!
100% Renewable: We want to move towards 100% renewable power and ditch the fossil fuel generator. We might have less power and shiney things, but we're growing in that direction.
Zero Waste: We will invest in Reusable Cups, Plates and Cutlery and stop disposable one use items - but please bring your own cutlery too. Please work with us and respect the deposit system and help with the washing up!
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 2017 is YOU and US playing music... We will have plenty of Jam Spaces.
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".
PLEASE GET THE COACH!!!!! We are subsidising it even more... Personal Vehicle Travel in the most polluting aspect of ANY event.
