From the press release:
Yes, we'll be back in Cardigan for our annual summer festival!
it's less than a year to the next one - which it would have to be, otherwise we wouldn't have had the last one yet...
...and we have a return visit by Nick Saloman and The Bevis Frond confirmed, along with a rare-as-hen's-teeth live appearance in the UK by psych legend nick nicely and the first live set by The Chemistry Set in the UK for years!
Add in first visits by Moon Goose and Three Dimensional Tanx, Red Sun, the back-by-popular-demand Alain Pire Experience, Babal and Elfin Bow - and it's looking really good........oh, and of course we'll have Sendelica playing at a festival that they've really made their own (mainly because they organise it all).
