Seek out the lost garden festival, Gwyl Gardd Goll 2011 - a real party-Bangor featuring Gruff Rhys, Echo and the Bunnymen plus more
Literally translated, the established Welsh music festival, Gwyl Gardd Goll translates as The Lost Garden, but there's nothing hidden, forgotten or discarded about this year's line-up.
Set in the North Wales country-estate of Y Faenol near Bangor, the three-day bash will take place from 22nd to 24th July and features a mixture of Welsh and English rock and indie luminaries such as Gruff Rhys, Echo and the Bunnymen, Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Badly Drawn Boy, Cate Le Bon and Richard James (Gorky's), as well as a raft of upcoming Welsh-language talent across three stages.
In true boutique (but not pretentious) festival style, you will also find various food stalls and beer vendors, all delivered with as minimal a carbon footprint as possible and fantastic countryside.
Ticket prices are also reasonable - an adult weekend ticket with camping costs £80 (or £55 without), with family tickets also being made available. More bands will be announced in due course - just hope and pray for great weather.
