Arriving in mid-Wales on Saturday, it took to Sunday to realise I was in close proximity to two music festivals. The first was Gŵyl Gardd Goll or the Lost Garden Festival near Caernarfon. More info here.
Not familiar with any of the artists other than Euros Childs and Sweet Baboo but read the blurb on the link above - sounds a superb event in an idyllic location. And only £8 for the day. One for next year maybe.
The other was in Borth only a mile or two from where I was staying: The Square Festival. 60 bands, 6 stages, 2 days said the poster, acts included Alabama 3, The Hot Puppies and The Crimea.
And then managed to drive past but not visit Andy's Records in Aberystwyth. From a moving vehicle it looked definitely worth a visit ...
So near-misses - but after all I WAS on holiday to spend time with my family (must remember this ...)
