The Nineteenth Dream
of Dr. Sardonicus
three-day festival
fruits de mer records' 2023 festival

Fruits de Mer Records & Sendelica
19th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus
Cellar Bar, Cardigan
August 4-6



Pete Bingham has been working hard on putting together a great line-up for next year's festival - a mix of festival and FdM favourites, together with some new bands to keep you on your toes.

The final line-up is now complete, with Nick Harper the final artist to be added; with The Bevis Frond headlining, Pinhdar and London Underground flying in from Italy, Cary Grace and the Soft Hearted Scientists returning after too many years away and The Vapour Trails, Spygenius and Codex Seraphini (my live 'find' of 2022) making their first appearances at the festival, I think you might say Pete has delivered in style

AND Record Collector magazine have confirmed their sponsorship of the 2023 event - great news for us as it means extra publicity, great news for everyone attending as it means lots more cool giveaways!

So, put a line through August 4-6 in your 2023 diary, book your tickets via Sendelica's bandcamp page and try to sort out your accommodation as soon as possible, Cardigan tends to fill up quickly in mid-summer.

Of course it's the live music that matters most, but there will, of course, be an FdM stall on the Saturday and Sunday, a free FdM goodie-bag for everyone on the Saturday and an FdM raffle - and a Record Collector magazine raffle on the Sunday

The goodie-bag will include at least six CDs, including:

'The Red Herring' - FdM's DJ-only compilation CD of tracks from our 2022 catalogue
'Vast Empty Space' - a CD by the late, great Todd Dillingham ('Vast Empty Spaces', another FdM festival exclusive)
an exclusive CD by Fulmen
an exclusive Lemon Clocks compilation CD
an exclusive Das Blaue Palais compilation CD
a CD by pre-Past Tense band, Pipe
a download card for 'Magic Modulations and Motorik Manoeuvres' by The Good Force
download cards for both of SEN3's excellent instrumental albums

- with more to come - any artists reading this who would like to add something to the goodie-bag, please email me
