The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2008
The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is the music festival that all culture and music lovers eagerly anticipate each year. This world-renowned festival features competitors from over fifty different countries, who make the trip to Wales to take part in this memorable event.
This particular music festival is a combination of music, song and dance, and it is an event that is suitable for young and old. The artist’s performances are world-class and of the best standard, and this year the line-up includes the likes of Elaine Paige, All Angels, Alfie Boe, Elin Manahan Thomas and David Kempster. There are workshops for children and educational dance performances for everyone. There will also be traditional Celtic displays of music and dance, as well as days dedicated to youths and families. This is definitely one of the classiest music festivals in the world!
All the action takes place on the Pavilion stage though there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy during and between the different shows. The more memorable performances take place during the evening, but festival goers can certainly get involved and learn more during the course of the day. The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales takes place of the course of one week. This year it will take place between the 8th and 13th of July. Each day of the festival is already completely organized and interested persons can easily peruse the programs to see what is in store before making up their mind about attending the festival or deciding which shows they would most like to see.
