DATES and a line-up have been confirmed for the online version of a summer festival.

Last month, the El Sueno Existe festival in Machynlleth, which was due to be held in August, was postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic.

But an online version of the festival has since been arranged with dates, times and events all confirmed.

A spokesman for the festival said: “Each event will be live on Zoom, and also live-streamed from the El Sueno Facebook page.

“Each evening will be a specially curated event, made up of live songs, speakers, dance, poetry, short videos and some surprise international guests.

“Come into the Zoom to share a very special three evenings of all things El Sueno. Just remember to bring your own mojitos.

“And we will be back for a real world El Sueno Existe festival in 2021 (July 23, 24, and 25) with much more from El Salvador and many other places and issues. All in the spirit of Victor Jara, the inspiration for everything we do at El Sueno Existe.”
