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! So please do bring things of real importance!


 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.
