As part of the BreakOut West partnership with FOCUS Wales, the following western Canadian artists have been invited to showcase 16-18, 2019 in Wrexham, Wales.
FOCUS Wales is a not-for-profit organization, established to provide an annual showcase event for the Welsh Music Industry. Our core work centers around the delivery of our annual multi-venue festival taking place in Wrexham each Spring, which places the music industry spotlight firmly on the emerging talent that Wales has to offer the world. FOCUS Wales 2018 will mark the festival’s 8th edition, and will welcome over 8,000 people to the town, building upon 2017′s record attendance across a jam-packed weekend of events. There’s no place like Wrexham during FOCUS Wales, as we showcase 200+ bands from across the world, fill out a variety of spaces and music venues, using 20 stages, and hosting a full schedule of Interactive Industry Sessions, Stand-up Comedy, Arts events, and Film screenings, throughout the festival. In addition to the delivery of the FOCUS Wales festival, we also deliver a number of events and workshops throughout the year.
