Focus on festival costs not travel costs

Wrexham-based music festival Focus Wales have teamed up with the organisers of Wakestock Gwyl y Mor to bring festival-goers the Focus by the Sea stage this summer.

As well as providing festival fans a new stage of eclectic Welsh music, the Focus team have teamed up with The Big Green Coach Company to provide a £5 return coach from Wrexham. This means that for £155, plus a booking fee, festival fans can get entry into the festival and transport from Wrexham.

The new deal means that music lovers who supporter the Focus Wales festival in Wrexham will be able to show their support at Wakestock, in Cardigan Bay, Gwynedd.

The Focus by the Sea stage looks to embrace all things Welsh during the festival and will have a series of Welsh musicians such as Charlotte Church as well as spoken word events, and Welsh comedians.

As well as the evening’s entertainment this year people can visit the Wakestock camp during the day for a cost of £5. There will be an artisan market, funfair, live music, and a series of local ales to try as well as a kids’ area.

Wakestock Gwyl y Mor, which translates to “festival by the sea”, is this year headlined by acts such as Tom Odell, best known for hit single Another Love, and Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls. Frank Turner gained international recognition when he performed at the London Olympics in 2012.

Formed 14 years ago Wakestock started off as a small gathering of people who were interested in Wakeboarding but has since transformed into one of the biggest festivals in the United Kingdom.
