Friday 4 - Sunday 6 October 2024

I want to come to the festival! How do I get in?

Because we’re based in the town of Aberystwyth, the festival ‘site’ is free to roam. You just purchase tickets to the individual events that you’d like to see. Whether that’s just one show, or as many as you can fit in across the three days, you just pay for what you go to watch.

Where can I buy tickets?

Tickets are available in advance from our website ( and via our app (courtesy of our super-talented friends at

On the weekend, all remaining tickets are available from our festival box office at The Bandstand on Aberystwyth seafront. There you’ll be able to grab a programme, see what shows are still available and purchase new tickets! NB you can’t buy tickets for shows on the door of each venue, they must be bought in advance online or from the festival box office in the Bandstand.

Will there be any tickets left on the weekend?

There will definitely be some available but there will also be shows that have sold out beforehand. If there are specific shows you are heading to see, it is advisable to book in advance. Any sold out shows will be listed as such on the website.

What do I do when I get there?

Most of the venues are concentrated within a 10 minute walk of each other on the seafront. There are also shows within the Aberystwyth Arts Centre complex so make sure you plan ahead to factor in travel time if required.

Once you have your tickets in hand, all you need to do is turn up at the venue 15 minutes before the start of the show.

The rest of the time is up to you! Aberystwyth has lots to offer whether you fancy a bite to eat, a little tipple or a walk to take in the beautiful coastal scenery.

Can I take my own drinks with me?

You can’t take your own alcoholic drinks into the venues but each venue will have a range of drinks available to buy before each show starts.

Are there any food stalls?

We don’t need to bring in dedicated festival food stalls because Aber has such a superb selection of restaurants, cafes and food outlets wherever you are in the town. Whether you are heading for a sit-down meal or grabbing something on the go, there are plenty of options so suit all tastes and budgets.

Where can I stay?

Aberystwyth has over 50 hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and serviced apartments within walking distance of the town centre and many more just outside. You can find more details via your preferred online booking platform.

What if I have more questions?

You can get in touch with us in advance via all the usual channels on social media. On the weekend itself we have a dedicated information point at our Official Festival Box Office in The Bandstand on Aberystwth seafront.
