Fire in the Mountain 2018

We invite you to the Fire in the Mountain TÂn yn y Mynydd.

Located on an ancient farm between the foothills of the magnificent Cambrian Mountains and the beautiful coast of Cardigan bay, at the end of the Mountain Road from Aberystwyth to Rhayader.

Join us in bringing this ancient kingdom alive once again in another magical gathering of hearts, minds, and music in the Valley of the Chagelings.

Ticketing Information:

ONLINE TICKETS: We are offering limited “Friends”or “Early Bird” tickets. These are advertised only to people who have been before by email, or on the Facebook group – and of course anyone who has heard about the festival and really wants to come. We’d like to sell out of tickets before taking advertising to keep the event small and intimate.

LOCALS TICKETS: Tickets for those living locally can be purchased in advance IN PERSON ONLY from Andy’s Records, Aberystwyth. In 2016 we are only having day tickets for the Sunday of the event, available in advance IN PERSON from Andy’s Records in Aberystwyth or from the box office during the event. Day Tickets can sell out so we advise purchasing in advance. Kids are free with Sunday Day Tickets.

NEIGHBOUR TICKETS: For those living in our immediate locality (Aber Magwr, Cnwch Coch, Llanfihangel Y Creuddyn, Trawsgoed), please sign up for tickets with Caitlin in the Y Farmers. Once on the list, you will be able to pick up your wristbands at the box office when you arrive.

This is a ticket only event. Due to high demand, we will not be selling weekend tickets at the festival. Please ensure you have purchased your ticket in advance before making the journey. Wristband checks will be made.

We are trying out a 3rd party ticket seller this year – http://www.theticketsellers.co.uk. We have opted to absorb all the processing costs of using their service so you still pay only the face value of your tickets.

Fire in the Mountain 2018 Line up so far

will be released some time in the future… … doing most programming in January.. 🙂

Waste Management
In 2017 we totally smashed it by introducing the Recycling Disco and a deposit system whereby festival attendees spend 30 mins helping us actually sort the waste. This resulted in off the charts levels of recycling going back into the system, and we dropped from 2 and a half skips in 2016 to HALF A SKIP in 2017! Unprecedented. Well, we’re up for improving the system and having even more fun in the Recycling Disco… please support

Reusable Everything….
In the past we paid a fortune for eco friendly compostable cups (and even their compostibility is debatable), we then paid for people to pick up and sort all the waste, and then paid for it to be transported and dumped in landfill. Essentially we paid good money to create a mountain of waste. Doesn’t make sense. We’ve invested heavily in reusable plates, bowls, cutlery and hot drinks cups. Traders and our central kitchen will be bringing extra hands to help with the washing up. Please support this initiative. There is no deposit system or anything, you just have to return your plates and cutlery to the trader. We do need help running this – so consider joining our volunteer teams.. it’s a lot of washing up but the washing up stations are in front of the music stages so you miss no music!

Wood Fired Cob Ovens, providing fresh pizzas and fresh bread.
Delicious Food locally sourced
Healing Area, Sauna, cold river plunge pool and bathing, and contemporary therapies.
Local Ales and Ciders from our Barn Bar

Sunday 3rd of June will focus on Welsh Culture, Music, Art and Food. Market of Local Arts and Crafts 10am – 2pm in the courtyard. Headline performances from the best in Welsh Folk Bands.
Book a Market Stall for Sunday 3rd June 2018
We are seeking local crafts people and food producers to have stalls at our festival market on Sunday between 10am-2pm. Also, if you are a traditional crafts person, please get in touch, we’d love to have demonstrations. Email info@fireinthemountain.co.uk

Our FREE programme of workshops take place in a beautiful 20 foot round yurt in the Valley. Music workshops on a host of different instruments, Dance, Song, Slow Jammin’ sessions, Yoga, amongst many others. Many of the workshop leaders are musicians performing at the festival. There are more workshops in The Woodland Yurt. We will this year again be hosting our Crafts Workshops with a host of crafts – distilling, fire by friction, natural dyeing, carving, green woodwork, and loads more to be confirmed
Volunteers – We Need you! Get Involved!

Fire in the Mountain is a registered Not For Profit organisation, run by a collective of volunteers. Our aims are to create a sustainable annual festival event, to raise money for and finance repairs and maintenance to the glorious Farm. Volunteers have food and drink supplied during their work days.

We are seeking volunteers to get involved and join one of our many teams: Production, Site, Catering, Stewarding, Decor, etc. Some roles involve work at the event, and some work before and after (but not during).

Waste Management: We need to recruit 12 people to help with all our recycling and waste management. We are aiming to recycle 95% of all waste. Since this is such a crucial role, we are offering travel stipend, fully catered the whole and a small wage.

Stewarding: We need to recruit 40 stewards, the eyes and ears of the festival, to help keep everything running smootly. Stewards work a total of 18 hours across the weekend.

Production and Set Up: We have 20 places for people to help work on the site before the event. Why not come early, get stuck in, and have the weekend off? These roles involve arriving on the Monday before and working until Thursday Evening.

If you would like to get involved, or indeed, have any particular skills to offer, please complete this handy form.

Food & Drink
We are providing the best in locally sourced food at the festival – any ingredients we are able to source locally we will. All food is reasonably priced and ethically sourced, with minimal packaging. We implore you to eat food served on site to help cut down on food brought on site, waste and food miles.

Our Bars are stocked with the finest of local ales and cider – and the selection improves every year as we seek out the best brews. Currently Purple Moose and Cader Ales are favourites!
Cider comes custom brewed from http://www.welshmountaincider.com/.
Keep a keen eye out for the Sipping the Velvet Speakeasy serving infusions and cocktails.

We welcome our furry friends but dogs must be kept on a lead and under control at all times. Poop must be scooped straight away and disposed of responsibly in the area provided. There are lots of animals, children and other dogs at the festival and we want everyone to feel safe. There are plenty of great walking areas bordering the site. Please be aware that you will be asked to leave the festival if you don’t comply with this and we don’t really want to have to do that. Lastly, due to the presence of livestock in adjoining fields, we recommend you remain vigilant at all times, as farmers do not take kindly to distress to their livestock.

Disabled Access
Please let us know if you have any special requirements and we’ll be glad to help out. Most of the main site is on flat ground with some uneven surfaces which are slippy when muddy. We try our best to improve the ground under these circumstances. The courtyard by the main stage is quite stoney but wheelchair accessible. The Dingly Dell, Healing Area and Workshop Tent are down a sloped track which is best avoided when muddy. Stewards will be patrolling regularly and can provide information and assistance. We provide accessible washing and toilet facilities.

There are two camping areas: Quiet and Family camping in the main paddock, near to car park, and Adventure Camping (short walk from main gate). The camping field opens to the public at noon on Thursday 2nd June, and closes to the public on Monday 6th June at noon.

Hire A Tent
Traditional Canvas Bell Tents available for hire (4 person). Bell tents will be pitched ready for your arrival in one of the sites beautiful meadows on the banks of a stream, with ample shade and access to facilities. No bedding or mattresses included. The tents are available from 12noon Thursday 2nd June to 12noon Monday 6th June. If campers who are hiring one of our tents would like to hire for an additional period immediately after the festival then please email in for further details.
Hire fee is being determined. For further information and booking email info@fireinthemountain.co.uk

Families & Children
We’ve upgraded the Family Area to now include 2 tents – one for babies and one for children!

This is not a pop up tent and can of Carling festival: the farm is in remote mid-Wales, in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. We recommend you bring a good quality waterproof tent (you will probably get cold and wet and have a shit time in one of those crap tents from a supermarket), something warm to sleep on and in, sturdy boots with ankle support, waterproof bottoms and tops, a torch, sun cream, your swimwear, and an instrument.

Travel and Parking
Due to space limitations on site, it will cost £5 per car to park, and £35 – £45 per Camper Van/Caravan. We really want to encourage more efficient transport, and we are subsidised coaches from London – and anywhere else where there is enough demand. We want to encourage people to car share and take alternative public transport. Car Share via FaceBook page.
Shuttles will leave every couple of hours from and to Aberystwyth Train station and cost £2 per journey.

Legacy Projects and Other Activities from the Fire in the Mountain Family
In 2017, our 7th Festival, we finally turned a profit. Incredible. So much work has been done to The Farm to look after it, fix roofs, landscape, and cultivate. We are aiming to use these proceeds to do some more work on The Farm to facilitate volunteers to attend throughout the year to enjoy the land and peaceful surroundings – tentatively we are aiming to build a permanent compost loos and shower unit and a “family room” with woodburning stove.. There may be further camping opportunities ahead!

Grand National Horse Racing Protest – Cardiff

Please join us for a peaceful protest against the cruel ‘sport’ of horse racing.

Around 200 horses die each year as a result of racing in Britain with a lot more suffering from painful injuries. 25 horses have been killed so far this year with 6 killed at the recent Cheltenham festival.

Trainers claim that they care about the horses and look after them well but still let the horses race in muddy unsafe conditions over really high fences, horses often suffer broken legs and other injuries from the landing and often pile up after jumping a fence.

We will be outside 2 bookmakers that are opposite each other on St John street in the city centre for a few hours before the 5:15 start of the biggest race on the biggest day in the horse racing calendar to raise awareness of the cruelty and death suffered by the horses and to urge the public to think twice about supporting horse racing.

Please bring placards and we will have plenty of leaflets to hand out
