Buy or win an Ian Phillips print


The well-known printmaker Ian Phillips designed our beautiful poster for this year’s festival. Ian has kindly made a limited edition of six original linocut prints of the ‘Blackbird’ design especially for El Sueño Existe and donated them to us to raise money for the festival.

As well as the bird singing atop a guitar, the design features the wording ‘A dream of a fairer society – the spirit of Victor Jara in Wales’, in both Welsh and English, etched into the shape of the hills around Machynlleth. (Unlike the posters, it is not over-printed with the festival details.) Each print has dimensions of 470 x 500mm and is unframed.

The usual price for one of Ian’s prints of this size is £485 but we are offering them at a special discounted price of £350. If you would like to buy a print, please email:

We will hold a ‘Magic Numbers’ prize draw for at least two of the prints at the festival itself. Pick your number at the festival Ticket Desk for the chance to take home one of these beautiful artworks.

Signed and unsigned A3 posters also on sale. All proceeds to the festival.

About the artist: Ian Phillips lives locally and has exhibited all over the UK. His linocuts of the Welsh landscape and coastal scenes in all weathers, often dotted with bird life, are highly distinctive. See more of Ian’s work at
