B-Fest has announced their 2023 dates after the success of this year’s festival which saw a ‘cracking’ return to Caerwys.

B-Fest was held on Friday and Saturday, July 8 and 9 and brought 19 acts to the main stage and an acoustic set.

The weekend music festival B-Fest was born in Babell and this year held at Ty Ucha Farm, Caerwys.

With big names like Space and the original frontmen of Inspiral Carpets, Amsterdam, Pele and The Seahorses, B-Fest also gave emerging local talent a real platform to kick on from.

Philippa Kitchen, the founder of B-Fest, said: “We treated this year’s B-Fest as though we were beginning again, after a three year hiatus. And the bands and the audience were cracking, really rising to the occasion. We can’t thank the acts enough for sticking with us and the community and volunteers for supporting us.”

Run by volunteers, B-Fest only happens because of sponsors, like Luntstone and Colman Kayman, who help out with the funding alongside ticket sales.

 Caroline Lewis, also a founder, said: “We rely a lot on goodwill, like Studio 1619 and Rent & Debt records hosting the acoustic tent. But it’s all worthwhile when you see a field full of happy, dancing people.”

B-Fest have confirmed their return next July 14 and 15 2023 and early bird tickets will be well worth keeping an eye out for. Not to mention who the headline acts will be. https://www.facebook.com/bfestwales/
