Well what a weekend that was!
I think it's taken me two weeks to recover! It has been hailed by many as 'the best yet' and I am so so proud of everyone who made this festival happen, the crew, the artists and you. Every year this festival brings something different and I hope you agree with me that this location was fabulous. It was like being at a festival and on holiday all at the same time! Special shout out to those who drove hours from the South, North & East to this wonderful gem of a spot on the West Welsh coast and we hope you will all make the journey next year.
The location with all the different intimate spaces worked so well for us, and it was great to see all artists, even those still unknown getting full audiences. As I walked around the site arts workshops were full, there was all ages playing on the assault course or many solos meeting lots of new faces in the tea tent. This is the platform we wanted to create.
The festival itself got so much publicity from local press and we were so well accepted in the town itself which is wonderful, we even got the BBC famous red sofa at the festival
As with any new site we already know many tweaks we want to make, but we are also looking forward to hearing your feedback on what you liked or what you might change.
My Facebook timeline has only just calmed down and was awash with photos and comments which is fantastic and look out for all the official photo albums on social media page: L Fest Events
Don't just take my word for it either check out these awesome reviews below.
Enjoy the rest of your summer L Festers and we will be in touch with ticket sales late September and the news of L Festive and the L Fest Awards later in the year.
Love from Cindy (aka the Boss)
