The annual Castell Rock festival in the atmospheric grounds of Aberystywth Castle takes a step up this year with its first international artist, Cerys Matthews, headlining. Second on the bill Nik Turner is also well known in both the jazz and rock worlds. Behind them will be a range of local bands (although both Cerys and Nik are based not far away in in Pembrokeshire).

The event is free, with donations to this year's chosen charity, Debra, encouraged. The charity supports people suffering from the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (See http://www.debra.org.uk/)

It's an alcohol-free event which has helped create the family-friendly feel of the last few years. Younger children will be entertained by various workshops and activities around the site.
