The wonderful Unearthed festival returns to beautiful Pembrokeshire 21st-23rd June 2019 for another spiffing three-night party of fine music, but it also provides an opportunity to take time out, chill, and nourish the soul. It really is a festival to exercise your consciousness as much as your dancing shoes.

Our Festivals For All Reviewers simply loved Unearthed 2018 – take a read of the FFA Unearthed Festival 2018 Review for just a flavour of what goes down.

The mystical Pembrokeshire setting drives the scene of course. Situated in the Wild Wild West of Wales and surrounded on three sides by the ocean, the county provides the perfect backdrop for the personal voyage of discovery that Unearthed can provide.

Now don’t get me wrong, Unearthed is one hell of a fine party with some great acts and happenings, but it’s a multifaceted beast. On one level it’s a great little friendly festie with its own magical atmosphere, but if you care to look – there is deeper, almost spiritual vibe going on. As FFA’s 2018 Review commented:

“Unearthed Festival is yet another jewel in the Pembrokeshire crown; with its own pilgrims drawn by the sacred beauty and mystical power of this land to share in a collective vibe of expanded consciousness, and well, a damned good party. These modern pilgrims are ragtag bunch, a heady mix of everything from New Agers to good-time kids, young and old. It’s a melting pot – and it all works together. It’s a great crowd and a pleasure to be part of. There is a vibe and buzz about Unearthed that some other festivals never attain … There is a harmony; a sense of shared community; a bond. The strapline ethos of the event is ‘from the material to the ethereal’. Unearthed manages to create a magical space in those Pembrokeshire fields to shed the everyday and hopefully discover something deeper about the universe and oneself, truths as old as the land itself.”

Artists of the calibre of Kiko Bun, Royal Sounds, Timbali & Peppery, I See Rivers, Lowri Evans and Lee Mason, and  Los Pulpos del Diablo, will grace the atmospheric covered main stage, and organisers have plenty of workshops and spoken word events lined up. The festival naturally offers plenty of therapies, healing environments and chill-out zones with a strong eco-friendly ethic across the whole site. Food has a veggie-vegan ethos and you can expect a great bar knocking out a variety of locally sourced ales, ciders, and spirits. Look out for the Drenchtown zone with hot tubs, sauna’s and various states of undress, plus a cracking after dark bonfire vibe.

2019 promises to be yet another classic bash. Check out further details and current ticket availability HERE.
