FOCUS Wales 2018

FOCUS Wales is back and will take place over 10th-12th May 2018!

FOCUS Wales is an annual multi-venue festival taking place in Wrexham, North Wales, 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, 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.

A new show for London 2018! Ride are thrilled to be playing BST Hyde Park on Saturday 7th July, joining The Cure’s big 40th Anniversary Concert! Interpol,Goldfrapp, Editors, Slowdive(band) and The Twilight Sad (Official) are also on the bill plus many more to be announced.

The Robert Smith-led band will celebrate four decades since the release of their debut single ‘Killing An Arab’ next year, while 2019 will mark the 40th anniversary of their debut album ‘Three Imaginary Boys.’

Pope wrote on Twitter earlier this week: “So, 2018 will see me collaborating with Robert on a feature-length, chronological documentary of The Cure’s history from the 1970s via present day to the future. Robert himself will tell the story and this will work alongside other events for the band’s 40-year celebration.”

He continued: “The film to which I will bring my own style of jiggery-pokery will use as well as ‘old favourites’ a cornucopia of material from Robert’s collection which has never been seen before; Super-8; interviews; bootlegs; rare performances; behind-the-scenes, blah.”

The Cure are set to play Hyde Park next July with support coming from Interpol, Editors and Goldfrapp.
