Let’s prepare for another big edition this coming May. Fresh from prizes and awards for promoting the Welsh music and arts culture, the Focus Wales festival will be back from May 10th to May 12th 2018.
A first wave of acts were announced recently. Of course, local bands will take a huge part of the bill again. From rock to electro to folk, we’ll get some regular festival acts like Campfire Social, Kidsmoke, Baby Brave, Lovers Open Fire.
Some big figures from the Welsh culture and beyond will be performing as well. Euros Childs and John Lawrence, formerly from Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci will fill the stage with their experimental folkish pop melodies as well as Mancunian songstress, Jane Weaver, indie dream popper Genghar and The Coral’s singer songwriter Bill Ryder Jones.
For newbies or just if you wanna know what’s going on in the industry, don’t forget to attend the conferences held by people from labels, festivals, music platforms and various medias. This coming year, you will be able to hear Martin Elbourne from Glastonbury festival, Rich Walker from 4AD,Feedy Frizzi from Moshi Moshi Management amongst many other prestigious people.
