Fire in the Mountain VI
Friday 3rd June - Sunday 5th June
Campsite opens to public noon Thursday 2nd June until noon Monday 6th June.
Mid Wales, near Aberystwyth
*** EARLY BIRDY TICKETS SOLD OUT>>>
ONLINE TICKETS: We are offering limited "Friends"or "Early Bird" tickets until mid-February. 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 (Aberystwyth, Machynlleth) 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. She works at the Y Farmers. Please respect the pub's business and do not phone the Y Farmers - she is just helping out. Please email Caitlin firstname.lastname@example.org 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 selling tickets direct through this website via PayPal (all payment details are securely handled by PayPal and we don't see these). The advantage here is you pay face value and we absorb the costs. Disadvantage is that it's a slightly clunky system and you have to carefully follow all the steps to complete the checkout.
We invite you to the Fire in the Mountain Tân yn y Mynydd.
A coming together of hearts, minds and collectives from across the country. We present bands and musicians from the USA, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England and of course Wales.
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.

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.
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.

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 £40 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
Over the 5 years the festival has been hosted on the Farm, Fire in the Mountain has raised enough money and enabled enough volunteers to come to have completely repaired ALL of the old stone outbuildings. This is a tremendous success made possible by all of you who have bought tickets, volunteered or supported the festival. Well Done!
