More about:

Legend Richard Hawley has been added to the extensive FOCUS Wales line-up for 2020 along with a further fifty acts that include Haçienda DJ Graeme Park and promising new band Rosehip Teahouse. The news is the third line-up announcement...one that's bound to bring in the attendees.

2020 will be the new music festival and conference's tenth anniversary, and the line-up is showing its big birthday credentials. Richard Hawley joins The Membranes, Gruff Rhys and Flamingods.

The festival will also showcase Altin Gün, JOHN, Stealing Sheep and Melin Melyn. 

FOCUS Wales also announced a new speaker at their annual conference today: Janice Long was the first woman to have her own daily show on BBC Radio 1. She will be in conversation with Radio 6's Chris Hawkins on the Thursday of the festival. 

Last year, we maintained our position that FOCUS Wales is one of the UK's best festivals. Read our full review here. In 2020, we expect more of the same, plus some extra pizazz considering the tenth anniversary celebrations...

FOCUS Wales will take place 7-9 May 2020 across a series of venues in Wrexham, North Wales.
