Stay with Fred's Yurts at Machynlleth Comedy Festival 2020

Machynlleth Comedy Festival 2020 has sadly been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 global pandemic. Please support the festival as this very tricky time and hope that the festival manages to return in 2021 

A weekend of stand up comedy in the enchanting town of Machynlleth over the first May bank holiday weekend. 

Entering its eleventh year, Mach is a cauldron of creativity that gives an unforgettable experience for visitors and performers alike.

Cash Points

There are a few cash points in town but we recommend that you bring some cash with you as these can run out by the end of the festival.


Machynlleth has some great local shops. There is a also a Co-op adjacent to the campsite. Supplies have been known to run short by Monday. 



 I have come to love the familiarity of the town, the friendliness of the people, the vibes of all the staff and ritual pilgrimage there and back, through all those mysterious town and prehistoric landscapes. There are few such unalloyed pleasures left in my professional life.
