Fruits de Mer Announces "The 14th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus Festival"

Hot on the heels of the success of 2015's 13th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus Festival in August, Pete Bingham/Sendelica and Keith Jones/Fruits de Mer are already promoting the 2016 festival. Some artists who are already booked include Sendelica (of course), Germany's Vibravoid, Twink (legendary drummer from The Pretty Things), and Guru Guru's guitarist Ax Genrich.

The 14th Dream of Dr Sardonicus 2016 posterNews direct from Keith Jones:

Thanks once again to Pete Bingham from Sendelica and our friends at the Cellar Bar in Cardigan, we'll be back in Cardigan August 5 - 7, 2016 for three days - and what a line-up we already have...

VIBRAVOID - everyone's favourite German psych rock band
TWINK - the legendary drummer from The Pretty Things
AX GENRICH - guitarist with original krautrockers Guru Guru (his first-ever gig in the UK, I think)
SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS - you know how much I love them!
SENDELICA - celebrating 10 years of recording
and more (extra acts to be announced nearer the time)

We're trying to keep all the best bits from 2015 and make changes where we think we can improve on things so, for instance:

Friday night - doors won't open until 7pm, and we'll be keeping things low-key on the first evening as i know it's a long journey for many people. No selling from the Fruits de Mer stall on the first night (so anyone who can't make it until Saturday won't miss out), but there'll be quizzes with FdM prizes, acoustic sessions and plenty of time to catch up with old friends

Saturday - lots of live music, the FdM stall will be in full swing, with exclusive vinyl and merchanding PLUS the traditional free FdM goodie-bag for everyone!

Sunday - more live music, on two stages, more FdM exclusives on our stall AND a free Sendelica/FdM white label one-sided single for everyone!

More news as i get it, but Pete is already selling tickets - capacity is still limited to 150, we sold out last year and we've already had our first booking from Germany!
