Festival 2022 – DATES confirmed!

(Pandemic notwithstanding – assuming it is fine to party) we are delighted to announce that we have confirmed the weekend of

5th /6th /7th  August 2022 for a three day summer festival, at Y Plas, Machynlleth, SY20 8ER

Main themes: El Salvador and Peace, Climate, Justice

There will be camping close to the festival site, + local B&Bs, hotels, etc. Easy access by train via Shrewsbury (north, midlands, London and south) – Machynlleth train station is 10 mins walk / 2 mins taxi ride from festival site & camping area etc.  




A full programme of fantastic music, informative political workshops, cultural workshops, dance, poetry, theatre, visual art, a full kids’ programme, Latin America foods and drinks especially from El Salvador,  and a whole lot more!

If you are a previous or regular festival attender, we’ll look forward to welcoming you all in August next year. IF you haven’t been to El Sueno before, but are intrigued by a festival of Latin American music, cultures and politics, celebrating the legacy of the great Victor Jara (Chilean singer songwriter & poet, murdered by Chilean fascism)  etc  then book the dates in your 2022 diary NOW! And check out some of the videos you’ll find on our website ( www.elsuenoexiste.com) under “Past Events” (from 2005 through to our 2020 online festival). And we are delighted to have the support of Jeremy Corbyn and the ‘Peace and Justice’ project (check out his wonderful message of support for the festival, in the main menu) amongst many others, both Latin Americans and ‘Solidarixs’
