tracks from the various CDs and the DVD that will be in the free FdM goodie-bag...
CARDIGAN...HERE WE COME!
The 18th Dream Of Dr. Sardonicus will now take place on August 5, 6 & 7 - a mere two years after we originally planned it.
Many of the artists originally booked have confirmed that they will be playing in 2022 - from iconic bands like Man and Fuchsia to FdM favourites Sendelica and The Telephones to the 'new breed' artists, including Moon Goose, Hanford Flyover and Taras Bulba
A real international event - with artists flying in from Australia, Finland and Fleetwood.
Unfortunately, London Underground and LoveyDove are unable to make the journey over, but Pete Bingham has signed up Ken Pustelnik's Groundhogs and Elfin Bow for return visits - we even have Mantle Brewery's boss Ian DJ'ing!
The original tickets for the 2020/2021 event are valid for 2022 and do not need to be returned to exchange for new tickets.
Anyone who originally booked for 2020 but can't make it to the 2022 dates will be refunded - but please email Pete Bingham at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on the refund process. If you're looking for a ticket, Pete's your man for that too - he has officially sold out, but there's always the chance that he'll get a couple returned
The Mantle Brewery will be serving up a specially-bottled Dr Sardonicus brew, the revamped Cellar Bar will offer everyone much-improved sight of the tiny stage...it's such a cracking weekend, if you've never been then make this year your first time.
There'll be a Fruits de Mer stall with festival exclusives, including lathe-cuts, special editions and signed albums from The Chemistry Set, Fuchsia, Moon Goose, Anton Barbeau, Custard Flux, Hanford Flyover and Taras Bulba; we'll also have some of our (in)famous £5 t-shirts and even some slightly less famous £10 polo shirts.
The FdM goodie-bags are ready and waiting, everyone attending the festival will get a free one, just for turning up with a valid ticket; each subtly FdM-branded tote-bag will contain
* A SIGNED WHITE LABEL FdM 7" from The Past Tense
* AN EXCLUSIVE TODD DILLINGHAM COMPILATION CD 'WHALES FROM TODDOGRAPHIC OCEANS', put together by his brother, Mick Dillingham
* A SPECIALLY-COMPILED CD OF PSYCH TRACKS FROM THE BIG STIR LABEL
* A DVD - 'ELECTRIC ORANGE - LIVE AT THE PSYCHEDELIC NETWORK FESTIVAL'
* THREE DIMENSIONAL TANX'S CD ALBUM, 'ATTACK'

A CD FROM THE VENERABLE STATIC CARAVAN BACK-CATALOGUE

A COPY OF THE LOVE EXPLOSION'S CD 'MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF DREAMS'
A CD FROM THE TELEPHONES' BACK-CATALOGUE OR
A STATIC CARAVAN 7" (again, the luck of the goodie-bag!)

OR Earthling Society's 'Zen Bastard' CD
OR Blunderpussy's 'Just Like Regular Chickens' CD
...oh, and we'll have a copy of the new incredibly-limited run Schizo Fun Addict 10" lathe-cut 'Fate Chaser' as a raffle prize, with sets of the band's 'Sun Yard' LP on both red and blue vinyl as runners-up prizes
AND the Mantle Brewery are producing a batch of special edition bottles of their best bitter, which will be on sale in the Cellar Bar (and in crates direct from the brewery)
...but most of all, be there for some great live music!
