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, Z-Machine and Taras Bulba
Unfortunately, London Underground and The Fertility Cult 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!
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 at the last minute.

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.
