Old Town Festival returns!

This is the Old Town Festivals sophomore year and promises to be a breath of fresh air for Carmarthen, a small market town in South Wales. Taking over venues all over the town with free live music and literature events there is a strong feeling of unity amongst the different business owners. From the coffee shops and pubs that are placed around the town to the larger music venues hosting the evening performances, Old Town Festival will bring two days of rich musical culture to the town.

This is a festival that doesn't forget its roots, the majority of live acts are local performers from Carmarthenshire and the surrounding areas.  The headline show at the Civic hall will be sporting the biggest names in the form of much talked about Cardiff group Islet (http://isletislet.com/), solo artist Sweet Baboo (http://sweetbaboo.co.uk/), Carmarthenshires very own Alex Dingley Band (http://alexdingley.bandcamp.com/) and the Bilingual Folktronica duo Trwbador (http://trwbador.co.uk/). Throughout the day there will be live performances around the town. Take a look at the amazing line up on the flyer - 

Aled Thomas is one of the hardest working guys in the area when it comes to live music! Front man for both the Conductors and the new exciting group Tree Of Wolves plus events organizer for the Parrot, he has been playing an integral part in the organisation of this festival. 

EMW: What does OTF bring to the town?  
AT: I'd like to think That OTF brings a sense of togetherness to the town, with the 5 stages spread accross different areas and the venues and shopping centres doing their respected parts, its nice to see music on the streets!
EMW: How can people find out more about the festival and the performers who are playing? 
AT: There's a free programme thats available from the venues and tourist info center, plus they will be handed out on the day, You can find us online on twitter @Oldtownfestival and on facebook too, www.facebook.com/oldtownfest
EMW: Who are you most excited to see perform? 
AT: Really looking forward to seeing Alex Dingley band on the Headline stage, Civic Hall, he's always a great guy to watch live, spontaneous and edgy, great pop songs too.
