A note from your hosts:
Rising like a glorious phoenix from the ashes of the ill-fated Alt-Fest, the Full Steam Metal Racket festival follows in the DIY ethos of the true punk movement.
Created by and for the Steampunk and metal communities, this exciting new event will showcase a delightfully eclectic mix of musicians and performers – appearing on two stages in the spectacular surroundings of the mid Wales countryside.
There will also be a host of activities and an artisan market – as many as possible of the delights that were promised for The Steampunk Experience @ Alt-Fest have been rescued and transplanted into this new home.
As Part of the Whole Alt-Fest Event we were running “The SteamPunk Experience”. With its demise, we’re still running an event,
It will include
– 2 Stages
– A Games area, a separate market/workshop area
Current lineup and times: Come back often to check as we’ll update as more acts are added.
Market and demonstrations open from 10:00 AM each day
Your Hosts for the weekend: Montague Jacques Fromage assisted by Maureen, and Lieutenant Jager Scnitzel
A. Indoor stage 150 capacity, first come first served
B. Larger Courtyard stage.
We’ll be alternating stages, with a short break between, to make for seamless changeovers

The Charity has three main aims and objectives:
