Fancy a Rally with a difference? Then the Mach2 Motorcycle Festival is for you!
Machynlleth (often referred to as Mach), set in the Powys region of Wales just 18 miles from Aberystwyth, is the festival location. But be assured as the gatering is organised by adventure rider Nick Sanders, you’ll not be staying in the one place for long!
Following on from the successful Mach1 festival, Mach2 promises to be even greater......
The festival runs from Thursday 25th - Monday 29th May 2017, all for only £65.00. Buy your tickets here and there's no booking fee.
An amazing setting, with full facilities. The Glamping option is now fully booked, but pack your tent and get ready!
The weekend promises to be fun from the start with quality Entertainment:
- 10 bands over the 4 days playing each evening
- free guided ride-outs on the Friday
- Adventure Quest on the Saturday
- Race day at are nearby ex-sheep circuit on the Sunday
Wholesome food, craft beers and the company of like-minded motorcycle adventurers. What more could a Motorcycle festival need?
Meet at Alba Customs for the run down and if you show your ticket to the staff at Gasoline Alley Cafe, you'll get a Free Cup of Tea/Coffee and a Bacon Roll to start you on your way!
