Tickets are now on sale for the Museum of Modern Arts’ Gwyl Machynlleth Festival as it returns after a two-year hiatus.

Following a scaled back version of the event in 2021, the organisers are welcoming attendees back to a full programme of performances for 2022.

The festival of music, history and culture, features celebrations of jazz, classical music, traditional Welsh music, exhibitions and talks, will be held at the Tabernacle from August 21 to August 28.

Some of the most anticipated acts of the 2022 festival include the Glyndwr Award, the annual Hallstatt, a male-voice choir concert, an African music night and a large-scale festival finale.

One of the festival’s artistic directors, Julius Drake, said: “It is a great pleasure to welcome audiences back to the Machynlleth Festival.

“After two years of unprecedented disruptions, we have a bumper programme in store.

“Included are first visits to Machynlleth for some towering figures from the world of music, as well as some old friends making welcome return visits.

“We are particularly delighted at the opportunity to introduce Machynlleth audiences to some superb young talent.”

The festival’s other artistic director, Dennis Jones, said: “We anticipate that tickets will sell very quickly for this year’s program, and therefore recommend you buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment and support this fantastic Festival.”

“I am very proud that Julius Drake and myself are able to bring such talent to perform at this fantastic venue. Long may it continue.”

Tickets can be purchased online at the Machynlleth Museum of Modern Art website or in person at the museum galleries.
