Following the UK Gov announcement and advice on social distancing, and the ever changing climate with COVID-19, FOCUS Wales have made the decision to postpone the 2020 festival from May until 7th – 10th October. All wristbands purchased for the event will be honoured for the new festival dates at the original price, and all individual show tickets purchased will remain valid for the rearranged shows where applicable.
Some good news, 98% of the original festival line-up has been confirmed for the new festival dates. The festival will see over 250+ acts from Wales and beyond, performing in various locations in Wrexham across 7th – 10th October.
