King’s Coronation vies for attention alongside north Pembrokeshire music festival

Last year's Gwyl Fel 'Na Mai

While the world will be tuning in to the Coronation of King Charles III, Welsh music lovers will be turning up the volume at the north Pembrokeshire music festival, Gwyl Fel ‘Na Mai.

Festival organisers had planned the date of this year’s event way before the Coronation date was announced for May 6.

As a result, they’ve decided to stick to their guns and go ahead with the festival despite what they described as ‘other events’ clashing on the same day.

This isn’t the first time that Gwyl Fel ‘Na Mai has been affected by conflicting events.

The very first festival was scheduled to take place in 2020, however Covid brought the plans to an abrupt end. The same thing happened in 2021 with the result that all energies were focussed on holding the first festival on the first Saturday of May, 2022.

And the Gwyl ‘Fel ‘Na Mai proved a roaring success with around a thousand people enjoying the festival which was held at the Frenni Transport site in Parc Gwynfryn, Crymych courtesy of Matthew Parry and his family.

People of all ages from throughout Wales listened to an incredible line-up of top quality Welsh musicians who took part in  the first Welsh music festival in the hills near the Frenni Fawr. 

 Gwyl Fel ‘Na Mai Festival is now a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and the committee is looking forward to once again welcoming artists on the first Saturday of next month, namely May 6, which is the set annual date agreed in previous years.

The two stages will be Y Frenni Fawr Stage and Foel Drigarn Stage and the line-up will include Candelas, Bwncath, Gwilym, Mattoidsz, Y Cledrau, Tecwyn Ifan, Lowri Evans,  Catsgam, Ysgol Bro Preseli, Bois Y Frenni, Elen a Cerys Hunt, Band Dros Dro and a folk music session. This year’s compere is Iwan John.

One of the festival’s main aims is to give local talent the opportunity to perform and these will include Band Dros Dro who won the Richard and Wyn Jones new band competition earlier in the year.

The activities will start in the afternoon and continue through  until the evening, with the aim of delivering quality entertainment in a community and friendly festival that the whole family can enjoy. 

This includes activities for children of all ages and the site offers plenty of parking facilities.

Tickets and more details are available online at www.felnamai.co.uk or at Awen Teifi in Cardigan and Siop Sian in Crymych.
