On 3rd – 5th June 2022, ‘In It Together Festival’ will bring something to the lush Welsh valleys that the country has never seen before: 40,000 people, eight stages of world-class, multi-genre music, and three days of rich entertainment and cultural enlightenment that will go down in history at Newlands Farm, Margam, South Wales.
This family-friendly camping experience from festival juggernauts Escape Records will give more than 50 carefully selected Welsh artists the biggest platforms of their careers, with a specially curated stage specifically for the very best in local talent. They will share the bill with a host of international superstars across a diverse and inclusive program of music and entertainment that also includes cabaret, comedy and circus fun, all with a focus on well-being and mental health.
The Escape team behind the event have firmly established themselves as the leading event promoters in Wales over recent years, having previously launched three hugely successful festivals across the country; Inside Out, Colour Clash and Party At The Park, as well as breathing new life into one of Wales’ most beloved legacy festival brands, Escape, each with capacities ranging from 5,000 to 15,000 people.
And now comes the biggest and boldest of them all. In It Together Festival will have a key spotlight on local talent as the team have been working hard to unearth the next Welsh superstars with their Welsh Artist Spotlight Scheme. More than 50 talents nurtured by the scheme will all play across The Paddock and Forgotten Garden Stage, showcasing their skills on a fantastic platform that will truly establish them as leaders of the next generation.
In It Together Festival will host six stages, all with bespoke themes, individual atmospheres and their own unique offerings. The production across the site will be second to none, with the biggest dance tent Wales has ever seen leading the charge, plus an unmatched audio visual experience making sure your every single synapse is firing from the first to the last moment.
In It Together Festival will be like living your own movie, where you take control of how it pans out. You could check out the wide array of international talents on the main Parc Stage who will bring rock, pop, indie and urban. Panchaia is all about dance music with a mix of disco, techno and house across the weekend. The Paddock Stage is the place to discover red hot emerging acts from the indie and rock world, while the Escape Records Stage will feature the various sounds and artists showcased across the label, covering house, bass and grime.
Or you could immerse yourself in a world of eccentric colour and unique characters on the The Wonky Lizard Stage, featuring takeovers from Haus Of Fabulous, where infectious personalities from the LGBTQ+ world will offer up comprehensive programs of cabaret, comedy and circus.
For those interested in furthering themselves in other ways, The Retreat will have a focus on mental health and wellbeing, with a variety of classes, demonstrations and speeches from experts and insiders. For the younger revelers, Tic Tac Toe is a family activity area hosted by Junior Jungle offering 10 hours of family activities each day. Finally, for the VIPs among us, The Miami Club will offer a truly VIP experience, complete with its own separate camp site.
The festival all goes down in expansive, rolling green countryside at Newlands Farm, Margam, Port Talbot with stunning views and no noise restrictions. Camping options include a luxury site with bell tents, tipis and yurts, with a separate, quieter campsite for those who want to relax and bring their own tents, plus a dedicated campsite for 16-17-year-olds and a louder, more party-ready campsite for those who want to stay up later.
With a world class line-up soon to be announced, In It Together Festival opens a historic new chapter for Wales’ music and entertainment scene and we’re just getting started. Make sure you’re part of it!
