Sueno Existe Festival 2013.
We are happy to announce
that the festival will take place on 30th, 31st
August and 1st September here in Machynlleth in
the beautiful Dyfi Valley of Mid Wales.
Over the years each festival has had its
own theme taking into consideration what Victor
Jara might have been singing about were he still
around. Themes have included the Bolivarian
Revolution, Venezuela Bolivia, Nicaragua, Wales
This year given that it is the 40th anniversary
of the military coup in Chile and the death of
Victor Jara amongst many others; we have decided
that this is what the theme should be.
As well as looking back on that time and
celebrating the timeless music of Victor, we will
also be looking at the contemporary relevance of
the coup and its aftermath to the here and
now both in the UK and in Chile.
We will endeavour as at previous festivals, to
offer an event that blends artistic creativity
with radical politics drawing on the inspiration
of Allendes Chile.
Its a small festival of around 500 people
and we aim to make it as inclusive, friendly and
participatory as possible.
We are proud to be again linked with Unite the
Union who will be sponsoring us and providing
We aim to keep the ticket price as low as
possible and it will help us immensely if people
can buy advance tickets.
Details regarding the festival will appear here
within next few weeks.
With Best wishes
