From 6th – 8th July, visitors can experience the full festival weekend in style as Glamping comes to Llanfest for the first time. In partnership with the Red Sky Tent Company, the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is offering weekend festival-goers deluxe camping for Llanfest – its one-day music festival taking place on Sunday 7th July. The brand new Llanfest Boutique Camping Village will be offering deluxe glamping just a short distance from all the action on the festival’s Pavilion site in the centre of Llangollen, North Wales.
Festival Chairman, Dr Rhys Davies, said, “We’re excited to introduce this new accommodation for visitors that is conveniently located close to the heart of the festival. This is about the offering a whole experience. Now, Llanfest visitors can stay and appreciate our unique event and immerse themselves even more into the beauty and atmosphere of our International Eisteddfod.”
Red Sky Tent Company Owner, Brendan Fitzpatrick said, “We are delighted to be hosting the first ever boutique glamping village at Llanfest. All of our sumptuous 5 metre bell tents are fully furnished with carpets, beds, bedding and village facilities include hot showers, a bar and a café. We want guests to come a day early, relax and spend their evening with us.”
On Saturday 6th July from 2pm, ‘Llanfest Glampers’ can get in the festival spirit as the Glamping Village hosts a free BBQ party for guests checking-in ahead of Sunday’s music festival. Then on Sunday at 2pm, the packed daytime programme of live music starts before the headliners take to the main stage that evening.
