Bienvenido! Festival 2017
Bienvenido! El Sueño Existe Festival of Latin American music and politics will take place in Machynlleth, 28, 29 and 30 July 2017. The spirit of Victor Jara in beautiful Mid Wales.
For every festival we choose a different theme and this year we will be looking at Ecuador. We seek to weave a tapestry of music, dance, progressive politics, poetry and drama here in the beautiful Dyfi Valley of Mid Wales. The music and life of Victor Jara of Chile is the source of inspiration for the festival and we seek to bring the representation of Victor jara and Allende’s Chile into the here and now so that it can continue to be drawn from as a resource.
The festival takes place on the edge of the small historic town of Machynlleth. There are beautiful mountain walks in the area and the gorgeous coastal areas of Borth and Aberdovey are nearby. There is camping at the festival and also various types of accommodation in and around the town. Early booking of accommodation is strongly recommended.
There will be plenty of opportunity for participation through dance, music making and discussion. Bring your voice and musical instruments.
We look forward to giving you a warm welcome.
