AN annual Anglesey music festival is set to raise much needed charity funds.

Philfest takes place at the award winning Iorwerth Arms, at Bryngwran, on Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20.

Last year, the not for profit festival raised more than £4000 for charity. This year, it aims to raise money for the Ysbyty Gwynedd renal unit, the Hafan dementia day care in Bryngwran, and Saint David's (Penrhos) Hospice beds at Holyhead.

Organisers say the popular festival promises a "huge range of music genres."

A spokesperson said: "Philfest has something to suit everyone, and with acoustic headliners Hannah Wilwood, Paul Williams and Colin T Jones playing alongside band headliners White Ether, Sophie Jayne and band, Straight Jacket Legends and Flux the weekend festival brings 28 amazing local acts together, and all at, officially, Britain's best pub, The Iorwerth Arms, at Bryngwran."

The festival was originally inspired by the community pub's unpaid volunteer Phil Blake. Phil needs regular dialysis, and had always wanted to do something to give back to the Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital in Bangor. The pub decided to help him by organising the festival.
