FAQ's for big mach

WHERE'S BIG MACH?

Our late August party will be held in a beautiful flat and well drained field 3 minutes walk from the High Street of Wales's ancient capitol, the 16th century town of Machynlleth. The Big Mach festival is situated behind the COOP supermarket at the edge of town, click on the map below to see exactly where it is.

CAN I JUST TURN UP ON THE DAY?

No, BIG-Mach is a pre-order event only. Tickets can be purchased from the MACH shop.

WHERE ARE MY TICKETS?

Physical tickets aren't being used for MACH. There will be a guest list and you will need to bring your booking confirmation and proof of ID in order to gain entry to the event.

OPENING TIMES

Arrive from midday on the 25th August 2022

Leave by midday on the 28th August 2022

COMING & GOING FROM THE EVENT

Each guest will be given a wrist band on arrival, which they must present to people on the gate when re-entering the festival. 

ARE THERE TOILETS & SHOWERS?

There are posh luxury loos and a handful of superior hot showers located in the "Posh Wash Village". A small fee of £3 will be charged for this facility. However hard we try we cannot offer a shower to everyone but there are showers in the local lifestyle recreation centre where a small charge of £1 gives you what you need, shower to your hearts content!

IS THE FOOD EXPENSIVE?

The food trucks have been chosen with good quality ingredients in mind. At Mini_Mach we can cook for everyone but not for larger numbers. BREAKFAST will be supplied by us on site, bacon baps are known as our speciality, also ham & cheese croissants, teas and coffees all served up by Caroline's Breakfast Ladies

WHAT ABOUT THE DRINK?

Think around £3.80 for a pint of incredible micro-brewed local beer. £5 for a really great cocktail. The best cider you've ever tasted for £4. We charge nice prices not like the normal festivals out there, we'll be as economical with our pricing as we can be. 

CAN I BUY A DAY TICKET?

In a word, no. Big-MACH is a small event with limited ticket numbers, therefore we are focusing on a relatively small number of full weekend tickets.

I'M A NOVICE RIDER CAN I JOIN IN NICK'S SECRET RIDES?

This is perfect for you! We'll give you a map, stuff with which you can programme your satnav and you're away. We'll even mark the cool cafes where you can have a munch as well as super locations to visit. We're a friendly bunch here at MACH and everyone is welcome to come along. The Secret Rides are ridden with mates or solo but at your own pace, enjoy!

I'M IN A BAND, CAN WE PLAY AT MACH?

Please send an email across to nick@nicksanders.com, he's our man picking the talent so will check you guys out and talk more. 

CAN I BUY STUFF ON MY CARD?

Of course. There will be a PayPal and card option, although cash is best for us as the internet can be slow. There are two cash points in Machynlleth so please stock up before you get to us, or dash over there during the festival if you need to grab some more. 

WHAT'S THE CAMPSITE LIKE? 

Can I bring my camper van?

The festival is located on a perfect super flat field. It's a fantastic location with loads of space. Small Camper Vans such as VW Transporters and Bongo's £15, bigger mobile home style vehicles, cars and caravans £20. Ordinary cars a fiver.  

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

Sadly we can't host your four-legged friend as the field is normally used by cattle and herds of sheep and sheep don't like dogs in the same way dogs like sheep!

CAN I BRING MY CHILD?

'Are they well behaved?' 

"Yes"

'As long as they are over 12 they're welcome to attend.'

CAN WE BOOK A TRADE STAND?

There aren't trade stands at the MACH festivals, it's all about the riding, music and generally having a relaxed time in the Welsh countryside. 

WHEN DOES THE FESTIVAL SLEEP?

Being relatively small and so close to town we have local restrictions. Also we are a 'riding festival' so we need to keep our heads in shape! So the festivities start early and finish around 12.30am - in our minds we can party with abandon Thursday and Friday, a bit less Saturday ready for our ride home on the Sunday.
