Your festival introduction from Artistic Director, David Campbell

We hope that Aberystwyth Arts Centre will be buzzing again with audience members keen to hear ‘live’ music and MusicFest Aberystwyth 2021 keeps the flame burning brightly through to July 2022 when, hopefully, the festival can relaunch a full, in-person Summer School and a Festival Concert Programme to be proud of.

ebb flow: Digital Installation 2021

The waves lapping at your feet, to the ebb and flow of our everyday lives, of love and loss, our 2021 digital creative team, showcase their understanding of ebb and flow. With specially crafted music and visual art in tandem, this MusicFest experience will place the tidal patterns of the gorgeous coastline of Cardigan bay front and centre. Although a digital, screening experience, audience members may also have the opportunity to actively engage with this installation through in-person performance.
