Festival August 2020

Sadly, but inevitably, we have had to postpone our festival themed around El Salvador, and the anniversary of Monsenor’s Romero’s assassination. This will now take place in Summer 2021. The dates for your 2021 diary if you have one are Friday 23rd Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th July, 2021 at Y Plas, Machynlleth SY20 8ER. This will be a wonderful and colourful celebration of the culture of El Salvador, its history, people, song, poetry, dance, art, film, food and drink.

Have you ever tried delicious Salvadorean ‘pupusas‘? If not, this will be the place to taste authentic El Salvadorean street food!

Vegan ones of course!

And if you want a foretaste of rural community music, try the website of the ‘Music for Hope’ project,


There is lots there to explore from our festival partner organisation, which has been working with young people who learn music, write songs, help keep their communities together etc for over 20 years. Well worth a visit! These youngsters will be beaming into festival 2021 via video links.

And if you are looking for your El Sueno Existe experience in this strangest of all summers, 2020, do join us online in early August for the celebration of all things past, present and future of El Sueno, commemorating the unique legacy of Victor Jara.

See you online! Nos vemos en linea! – Details of dates and programme are currently being organised and will be announced soon .
