Play Festival 2013 - Llanfyllin, Wales, 14th-18th August

Play festival 2013 After the amazing guests shipped in to teach and amaze us over the last two years of Play festivals our mouths have been watering at the prospect of this year's superstars. Finally Play have revealed some of what they have planned.

Starting the proceedings on the Wednesday night is the MCP show! Expect mad skills mixed with a healthy dose of MCP's unique humour.

Organised Kaos, Wales' finest youth circus present their show on Thursday and later in the day we'll have the Open Show (to get involved in this see here).

Shake That, from Belgium, will be performing an outdoor show on Friday - not to be missed! Then the evening will see the legendary Play fire show with Flame Oz, Marvin and Jennifer Ong, Ninja Dave and others.

Then there's the Gala Show on Saturday, and my word it's looking like something special! Among the big names are Aileen Lawlor from the States who is one of the most graceful, yet technical, contact staffers out there, Matthew Green, a rising British juggling star currently training at Circus Space, and Tony Pezzo, one of the most talented and innovative young jugglers on the planet, often seen in cahoots with Wes Peden and Partik Elmnert.

We didn't think they could do it but the Play team may have planned an even better festival than last year's!
