We feel confident when we say that Glass Butter Beach boasts one of the most outstanding backdrops of any summer festival. Glass Butter Beach will take place on the lush green fields and sheltered sandy beaches of Llanbedrog. Tucked away behind the mighty mountains of Snowdonia, the setting really is a breathtaking semi paradise on the Lleyn Peninsula and one of the most outstanding backdrops of any summer festival. You can travel to the Glass Butter Beach festival by road or rail. The primary location for the weekends activities is on the main festival site in Llanbedrog but the Pro Surfing Comp is taking place at Hell’s Mouth (Porth Neiwgl) which is a renowned surf spot in North Wales. The popular seaside resorts of Abersoch and Pwllheli are very close by, so for those not wishing to camp up on the festival site, there will be shuttle buses running to and from these locations throughout the weekend. Basically, once you arrive at Glass Butter Beach you’ll easily be able to get from one area to another and won’t have to worry about a thing!
