Surplus are proud to be among the many small festivals that have sprung up over the last few years that are about the People, not the profit... We pride ourselves on being 'just organised enough', keeping the free-festival-feeling alive. Our aim is to bring Tribes together from all walks of life, connecting old friends and making new; Crusties, Punx, Rockers, Ravers, Hippies, Nutters, Lone Wolves and Weirdos, One Percenters and EVERYBODY else for that matter . . .
Here are some of the awesome things that Surplus People have had to say about the gathering in previous years:

Surplus has faced some huge challenges over the last 3 years & 5 festivals, with not one but 4 sites falling through, but we've always pulled together with the help of our friends and families - not just making it work but going from strength to strength.
We've hosted some incredible Bands and DJs since 2014, & we plan to continue representing & celebrating underground music, art and culture in the wilds of Wales.
We're always looking for people to get involved, so If you think you have something to offer, please head over to our 'contact us' page, take a look at our vacancies, fill out a form & we'll get back to you as soon as we can :)
