The Square Festival

The Square Festival is an annual music festival held in Borth, Ceredigion, Mid Wales, which was set up in 2005 as a small festival for the small seaside village. In 2008 it grew to become a commercial festival for up to 3,000 people over two days. In 2009 the organisers hosted the festival over three days with a capacity for 5,000 people.[1] In 2010 the festival organisers made the decision not to host the square festival.


In its first year as a commercial venture, The Square Festival was held on July 26 and 27, and was attended by almost 2,900 people. It had four stages hosting over 40 acts, with Pendulum and Alabama 3 headlining the main stage on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Due to the success of 2008, organisers plan to increase the capacity of the festival for future years.

The 2009 festival took place on 24–26 July on the same site as the previous year. Over three days the festival had five stages, including one dedicated to new music from Welsh bands. The Main stage was headlined by Supergrass and The Holloways on the Friday, Skindred and 65 Days of Static on the Saturday, and The Beat on the Sunday.

As well as music, the 2009 festival planned to include a Human Zoo, a clothes swap shop, a Man Made island for Hammocks and an attempt to break the World Record for most people skinny dipping at one time, however due to financial and organisational constraints none of this was possible.[2]


In 2010 the organizers made the decision to have no festival due to financial issues.[3]
