Wrexham-based showcase festival FOCUS Wales has announced a new Canadian partnership.
In teaming up with BreakOut West, the event will be hosting seven new Western Canada-based acts across its three days.
The list of acts is:
Bad Animal (Alberta)
FRANKIIE (British Columbia)
Yes We Mystic (Manitoba)
Gunner & Smith (Saskatchewan)
Miesha & The Spanks (Alberta)
Trash Hawks (Saskatchewan)
FOCUS Wales’ Andy Jones says: “We’re very pleased to be renewing this partnership in 2019. BreakOut West offers a fantastic opportunity for artists from Wales to make their first important strides into the North American music market, and, equally, the partnerships are going to provide a gateway for the very best emerging Canadian artists to access the UK music industry through Wales.”
Acts already confirmed for FOCUS Wales, which this year takes place between 16th and 18th May across Wrexham, include Boy Azooga and The Lovely Eggs.
Tickets are on sale now.
