Unearthed in a Field returns.

In its 4th year, growing year on year in popularity, ‘Unearthed’ is a wonderful, boutique festival set in the heart of the countryside in a meadow near St Davids.

The core aim of the festival is ‘the expansion of consciousness from the practical to the ethereal’, through music, arts, performance, communication and discussion.

“Unearthed stimulates and inspires the senses with experiences that are not generally found in our day to day lives” says Tim Rees of the family friendly festival run on his land by himself and and musician Dan Messore.

The 3 day festival takes its visitors on a musical odyssey through reggae, world and folk music. Pembrokeshire musicians such as Regime, Jodie Marie and Lucy Jones grace the stage alongside a worldwide mix such as Ghanaians ‘Nelson and Friends’ and Japanese born ‘Ichi’.

Undercover Hippy from Bristol bring a modern Ska vibe to the event  whilst Rachel Dadd inspires with experimental folk. Headline DJs such as Derw the Damaja take the beats up a notch with powerful Dub in the evenings. 

Welsh roots are further celebrated with a classic Twmpath Saturday afternoon. “Bare foot dancing with the sun on our backs” says Tim. 

A Speak Easy tent features a fascinating range of daily talks such as Transforming shadows - turning demons into employees’ from Jamie Catto, founding member of Faithless and One Giant Leap films to a talk on Community agriculture from local GM campaigner Gerald Miles to Soul manifesto for troubled times from Pembrokeshire author, Steve Thorpe.

What else to expect: Trapeze, fire shows, a magician, a walk around labyrinth, a kids tent and workshop area with a range of activities such as learning to make your own guitar and didgeridoo to singing, mosaic, drumming, daily yoga and meditation, a Cacao ceremony and circus skills. 

And don't forget the food: Local and organic vegetarian foods each day such as vegan ice-cream made from coconut nut and cashews by  ‘IceGreen’  and organic wood oven pizzas by St Davids company ‘Torth Y Tir.

Unearthed in a Field runs from 17th-19th June at Cerbid near Solva

 Just come back from a week’s break in St Davids - loved the area completely, and the local people are brilliant. Highly recommended is a boat trip to Ramsey Island.
