Focus Wales 2013
Music Festival and Conference
Wrexham, April 25,26,27
Welsh music festival and conference Focus Wales 2013 is returning in a couple of weeks. Here’s the lowdown on it.
In the unlikely event that further proof were needed that Wrexham really was the place to be for any aspiring cool cat, it is provided in bucket-loads by this year’s outstanding Focus Wales Festival.
A mostly Welsh line-up of over 100 bands is complemented by the legendary Michael Rother who will present the works of Neu, Harmonia and other solo work. Friday afternoon will also see a conference with guest speakers including LTW boss John Robb and legendary Damned and Hot Rods bassist Paul Gray.
Welsh music has never been in better shape as the range of outstanding bands across the venues will testify. Alongside the other headliners of Charlotte Church and Man Without Country, are such diverse must see acts like Golden Fable, Gallops, We Are Animal, Trwbador, Gweno and legendary Wrexham post-punk act Terminal. Super Furry’s Guto Pryce and Lindsey Leven will prove very popular in the guise of Gulp while Cardiff psyche –rockers Keys will get the event of to a flyer on Thursday.
With so many excellent acts spread over the town for the three days, Focus Wales is set to be an absolute stormer. Pack your bags, throw them in the van and set the controls for the heart of North Wales.
It’s a no-brainer!
