The magical festival returns...
Fire in the Mountain Festival, near Aberystwyth, 1st - 3rd June 2018
Join Fire in the Mountain in 2018 for another magical festival!
´Every now and then everything comes together to make a gig that little bit special and Fire in the Mountain festival was definitely one of those times. There were so many inspiring friends and musicians in the audience for our gig on the Sunday night and we left the stage with the whole place carrying on the chorus to ´Keep your Hand on the Plough´. The whole festival felt like the start of a new, vibrant, edgier folk scene that we´re really excited to be a part of´.
