Burning Lantern reviews:
"The first ever Burning Lantern Fayre was a huge success, with 8,000 fans of all ages enjoying a variety of music from many genres. The weather held out making for a sunny all-be-it rather cold afternoon/evening. Everyone seemed to enjoy the buzz of Wales’ newest music event, and we hope it is the first Lantern Fayre of many"
"On a dry summer’s evening there can’t be many venues around to match the one on display at St Fagans Castle at the weekend. Under glorious blue skies and a wonderful forest setting, it provided the backdrop to a great evening of music, much varied but in many ways, very complementary. From Motown greats Martha Reeves and Vandellas to the main pairing of Jack Savoretti and Tom Odell, plus the current country sensation that’s The Shires, there was certainly something for everyone. And in the acoustic bandstand Merthyr’s Kizzy Crawford and Cardiff’s Zervas and Pepper, who never disappoint, did a very short set due to the festival running over with timings. They still manage to perform four songs of quality and featured a couple from their new album, the much acclaimed Wilderland..........
Hopefully Burning Lantern will return and smooth out the rough edges that presented themselves this year – but from a musical perspective there were no complaints"
