New Festival in Aberystwyth

The Square Festival

Encompassing 2 days, 4 stages, 60 bands, and a capacity for 3000 people, The Square Festival is a new event located 50 meters from the Irish sea in the beautifully idyllic landscape of rural North West Wales on 26th-27th July 2008.

Below is the lowdown from the festival organisers:

“We want this festival to be a ran like a community, we believe the crowd are the festival; and we want them to be involved.

The crowd is encouraged to participate in the Square festival itself, with a cabaret tent being open to all of those creative people out there who fancy a show off, whether it be music, stand up comedy, poetry readings or anything else you can think of to entertain us!

At our acoustic/world music stage, you can expect Gypsy, Klezmer, European and Balkan Beats. You’re bound to hear an array of interesting beats from the continent and beyond. In the dance tent you will hear sounds from our loved and local DJs as well as other talented DJs from the South, North and East.

We are actively promoting green living, new music, Welsh music, local arts, air guitar, youth involvement, life with an open mind and free speech. Away from the music there are teepees, extreme sports demonstrations, music and art workshops, plus much more.

Proceeds from the Square festival will go towards the local community, and developing musical talent in the area.”
