WREXHAM Lager has today (Friday, June 17) announced that social media sensation and local icon Bootlegger will be its 'special announcer' at its upcoming music festival.

The Wrexham Lager Open Air Music Festival will be taking place from 12.30pm at Commonwood Fishery tomorrow (Saturday, June 18).

The highly-anticipated event passed the 600-ticket mark for online sales earlier this week.

The main attraction will be iconic Welsh singer Dafydd Iwan - the man behind the 'Yma O Hyd' hit which has become synonymous with the Wales football team lately.

Also performing later on into the night will be the much-loved Declan Swans.

But now there's another popular figure who has announced he will also be taking part in the festival.

The Leader:

PIC: Bootlegger will be teaming up with Wrexham Lager once more this weekend.

Die-hard Wrexham AFC fan Karl Phillips AKA Bootlegger has become something of a star online over the years, particularly on Twitter where he now has over 330,000 followers.

He has also had the rare honour of having a beer named after him – Wrexham Lager’s Bootlegger 1974 – and recently released his very own autobiography.

And there will surely be -as he puts it - no 'gruellers' in Wrexham this weekend, only good times, as Bootlegger has the honour of announcing guests at the festival.

In the announcement video shared by Wrexham Lager on Twitter, Bootlegger invited people to 'come over and enjoy some cold pilsners with the captain' when the festival gets underway.

There are also 12 other fantastic live acts performing throughout the day, including Jonny Ash, Baby Brave, Catalyst, and Evrah Rose.

There will also be stalls at the festival site which include the spirit of 58 stall, beer stalls, food tents, and plenty more!
