fruits de mer records' 2023 festival special edition Mantle bitter

Fruits de Mer Records & Sendelica
20th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus
Cellar Bar, Cardigan
August 2-4, 2024


..but just give us a few weeks to enjoy the memories of the 19th Dream....


The 19th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus - our annual three-day psych/prog festival, organised and hosted by Pete Bingham from Sendelica; this will be the 7th year of Sardonicus (we started with the 13th Dream!) and it's become an annual gathering of fans of great music - live and on vinyl - along with great beer courtesy of Mantle Brewery, including their special edition '19th Dream' best bitter, and as easy-going and friendly a setting as you could wish for.

Pete Bingham has been working hard on putting together a great line-up for us - a mix of Sardonicus and FdM favourites, together with some new bands to keep you on your toes.

The line-up is complete, with The Bevis Frond headlining, Pinhdar and London Underground flying in from Italy, Cary Grace and the Soft Hearted Scientists returning after too many years away and Nick Harper, Spygenius and Dark Zen Kollectiv making their first appearances at the festival

Sadly, both The Vapour Trails and Codex Serafini have pulled out at short notice, but Consterdine has stepped in to put on a chilled Sunday afternoon set, while the legendary Kris Needs and co-founder of Sabres of Paradise Nina Walsh will be doing a one-off DJ'ing set!!!

AND Record Collector magazine are continuing their sponsorship of the event - great news for us as it means extra publicity, great news for everyone attending as it means lots more cool giveaways!

Book your tickets via Sendelica's bandcamp page and try to sort out your accommodation as soon as possible, Cardigan tends to fill up quickly in mid-summer (and please note, OUR festival is mud-free and rain-free - it's all held downstairs in Cardigan's Cellar Bar, opposite Cardigan castle!)

Of course it's the live music that matters most, but there will, inevitably, be an FdM stall on the Saturday and Sunday, a free FdM goodie-bag for everyone on the Saturday and a Record Collector raffle - and an FdM raffle on the Sunday
