Comments

We have had some wonderful comments from people who attended El Sueño Existe Festival 2013 in Machynlleth…

‘One of my favourite moments was during the open mike session in the community garden, when someone exclaimed “Victor Jara presente”, and thereupon a butterfly magically appeared, landed on my friends hat, and calmly sat for a few minutes, before slowly rising and flying accross the circle and away, whilst we all looked on in awe, as it seemed as if Victor had indeed appeared in the guise of a beautiful butterfly! A real magical moment!’ – Leigh Munton

Expectant crowd waiting for Osvaldo Torres on Sat afternoon.

From feedback forms:

‘Saturday night concert was excellent – indeed all performances were!’

‘Great mix of music, dance and politics – really powerful and so important!’

‘Still my favourite festival!’

‘[I liked] the friendliness and performances, well organised, good coordination.’

‘Lovely chilled atmosphere; range of music, dance, poetry and politics; focus on peace!’
