This Welsh festival held at an incredible Mediterranean-style seaside resort of Portmeirion returns for its third outing, having quickly established itself as one of the top dogs as far as alternative festys go.The big news is that ever-eclectic songwriter Beck will be headlining, supporting the release of his impressive 'Morning Phase' album, but other exciting prospects are hotly tipped alt pop band London Grammar, 'Buffalo Stance' master Neneh Cherry, Motown legends Martha And The Vandellas, and a fantastic selection of other acts, covering indie guitar-twiddlers, arty-rock types and underground DJs playing anything from house to bass to disco. There's also a big focus on arts, poetry, spoken word, readings and other cultural tidbits at this blissful escape from reality.
