I’ve never been to a festival. I always wanted to go to Glastonbury. I swore I would go the year after my 21st birthday, and typically, that ended up the year it didn’t happen. After that, life got in the way and I never ended up going to any. The urge to go to a pop or rock festival has kind of passed a bit now – I don’t know half of the artists that feature at them, and to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of a lot of chart music.
That’s where the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is a bit different, and much more up my street. An Eisteddfod is a Welsh festival of music, literature and performance. On the S4C channel at the moment there is coverage of the 2017 International Eisteddfod, which we have watched bits of over half term and enjoyed, so we are excited to be able to go the music festival in Llangollen in North Wales in July.
What’s happening at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod?
It’s a week-long family-friendly celebration of music, dance and culture. It’s been running for 70 years, and features live performances and two tipis housing children’s craft activities and musical instruments all week, as well as giant outdoor games and activities. On the evenings are performances from big name artists, such as the Manic Street Preachers and Gregory Porter. The overall message of the festival is one of peace, unity and inclusion, which given recent events is rather poignant.
There is one prize of a day family pass as described in the. No cash alternative.
