Information for Fire in the Mountain 2012.........

The Fire in the Mountain is rekindled and its warm glow casts light over the valley of change – Cwmnewidion. Red kites soar above lush green ravines, with oak grove and wild meadow below. Located between the fringe of the magnificent Cambrian mountains and the beautiful coast of Cardigan bay, where hare and horse graze, natures spirits ebbing and flowing.

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


We invite you to the Fire in the Mountain, International Folk Festival of Cwnch Coch at Cwmnewidion Isaf.

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.

This year we are pleased to welcome a host of bands from Bristol, Liverpool and London. We have loosely themed each day around our headliners. Saturday is Celtic Day and we host the BEST young Scottish pipers Ross Ainslee and Jarlath Henderson. Sunday our headliners hail from the Appalachian Mountains: Adam Hurt and Stephanie Coleman. Monday is Welsh Culture day, with headliners Calan.

Welsh Culture Day

Bank Holiday Monday features a farmers and local crafts market. We also feature a host of Welsh folk bands on the main stage, with Headliners Calan.

We are providing the best in locally sourced and Foodprepared food at the festival. There will be a breakfast bar serving sausage from the farm 8 – 11am. Our central kitchen will provide lunch and a big communal dinner every night, so everyone eats together! There will be fresh pizza, bread and pastries available from our newly built traditional cob ovens around the clock. 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.

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 31st May, and closes to the public on Wednesday 6th June at noon. Access to the main site is from Friday 5pm until noon on Tuesday 5th June.

Twelve and under get free entry to the festival. 13 and over pay full adult price. In order for 12 and under to be admitted to festival, please email to reserve your child ticket - we need to know how many kids are on site for our license. There are plenty of activities arranged for kids - workshops, facepainting, circus skills, cinema etc.

We are pioneering the latest designs in Composting Loos.

The farm is in remote mid-Wales, in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. We highly recommend bringing good solid footwear and good quality rain clothes, in addition to sun cream.

Travel and Parking
It will cost £5 per car to park, and £10 per Camper Van/Caravan. This is because space is limited and we want to encourage people to car share and take alternative public transport. Car Share via FaceBook page.

Please email to reserve your campervan ticket - space is limited and we need to keep tabs on live in vehicles coming.

Shuttles will meet EVERY train coming to Aberystwyth Friday and Saturday, and again , shuttles will run to meet every train Monday and Tuesday at no cost.

Car Sharing
We have a car sharing site set up and ready to use here:
