They’ll be joined by a slew of international acts, including indie rockers The Vaccines, The Hoosiers, and Vistas, chart-topping artists Tinie Tempah, Scouting For Girls, and Gabrielle, funk and soul legends Craig Charles and Soul II Soul, as well as the incredible Symphonic Ibiza, complete with a full 24-piece orchestra and Angie Brown & Rozalla, serving up unique interpretations of dance classics.
The rolling green countryside at Old Park Farm in Margam will come alive and be transformed into an immersive world of wonder for one weekend only, with no noise restrictions, no end to the fun, and nonstop music.
Init together festival said: “To us, it is the very sentiment of all we have witnessed during the Pandemic and the sense of community it has brought.”
“From the weekly clapping for the NHS and all key workers, to neighbours standing side by side to recognise the sheer gravity of what the world was becoming. For over 12 months, we have stayed away from those we love most in order to protect them so we can one day be reunited safely. We’ve come together as a community and celebrated those who often go unrecognised and we’ve reevaluated our lives to make the most out of them.“
“That is where the concept of In It Together came from. It is a community, a festival, a reunion and a celebration. It is all that we’ve gone through and all that we’ve missed.”
“In the heart of the Welsh valleys, we plan to bring it all together with international names, local emerging talent, festival goers, performers, volunteers and members of the local community. We want to reunite everyone with everything they love about life.”
“Born out of a love of music, for Wales and the community, In It Together will celebrate it all on the Jubilee Weekend in June 2022.
Our vision is to create the pinnacle Welsh Festival which means all things to all people and offers a bespoke blend of Music, Arts & Culture. It will be a place which supports equality, inclusivity and sustainability whilst putting a spotlight on mental health and well-being and creating a safe space for all.”
