FOCUS shifts to International for Wales

FOCUS shifts to International for Wales

This will be the first international showcase arranged directly by FOCUS Wales and made possible with the help of Wales Arts International’s International Opportunities Scheme which offers support for Wales based artists to undertake international visits, aimed at the development of international work outside of the UK.

Guitarist Thom Hyndman said:

"This is a great opportunity for the band. Zandari Festa is a massive event, so we’re all really excited, and grateful to FOCUS Wales for making it possible."

FOCUS Wales has maintained a steady profile of activity overseas over the past 18 months, securing international showcases at this year’s festival from Canada’s BreakOut West Festival, Music Nova Scotia and POP Montreal as well as a debut showcase of Korean artists by Zandari Festa.

Campfire Social play Zandari Festa on Sunday 1st October, 21:30 (KST) at Club Freebird.

FOCUS Wales Co-Founder Andy Jones said:

"We’re really excited to be taking a Welsh band out to showcase under the FOCUS Wales banner for the first time. We’ll be working alongside partners, including British Council Cymru and Wales Arts International, to do everything we possibly can to promote Welsh music and culture abroad. It’s a pivotal part of our strategy going forward. We’ll also be looking for exciting acts to invite back to Wales in May."

FOCUS Wales 2018 takes place in Wrexham, Wales, UK from 10th to the 12th May.
