Dates: 12th – 14th May 2016
Drawing heavily on shoegaze and alt-rock, The Joy Formidable have gone on to create more buzz than a swarm of bees with a megaphone on both sides of the Atlantic, releasing two studio albums and infecting the nation with their darkly joyous soft-loud racket. They take the headline slot at FOCUS Wales on Thursday 12th May, joining the line up that already includes Cardiff’s Los Campesinos!, Welsh Music Prize 2015 winner Gwenno, DIY magazine favourites Kagoule and Moshi Moshi’s debutant Meilyr Jones.
Showcasing over 200 bands from Wales and around the globe, FOCUS Wales is set to bring several thousand people to Wrexham. A series of high profile and educational music industry seminars and events are also planned; plus stand-up comedy and arts events, adding to a host of activities taking place across the town.
Tickets for The Joy Formidable show and a limited amount of Earlybird £30 festival wristbands, which grant access to all FOCUS Wales events throughout the three days of the festival, are still available HERE.
