Day Two – Sunday (Dydd Sul). It was a noon start, and evident from this early on that today’s crowd was going to be bigger than yesterday.
One of those tireless workers behind the scenes, Ffion, was good enough to explain the origins of this neat little festival,
‘Gwyl Gardd Goll was first held in the Summer of 2007 after the founder, Dilwyn Llwyd, was inspired to explore the possibilities of staging a small music event in the slate amphitheatre in the historic Glynllifon gardens near Caernarfon after visiting them one glorious sunny afternoon,’ she continues, ‘That initial afternoon festival was a success and Gwyl Gardd Goll developed over the first few years into a two day music event with its main intention being to give people of all ages an opportunity to enjoy contemporary music together in beautiful, unique locations.’

Superhorny was David Wrench’s excellent single released last year. It should’ve been number one in the national charts, but with only Adam Walton and myself beating the drum, David and Storm Records had to make do with a few thousand sales instead of tens of thousands.
