The organisers of Rock the Park have issued an update on plans for next year's music festival in Wrexham. 

The event was set to take place this year, but was postponed earlier this month

Wrexham Council said they were unable to support the festival, which is why they refused the licence application.

The council said the application for a licence was filed late and both council officials and North Wales Police also raised concerns about the safety of revellers due to the proximity of the event site off Borras Hall Lane to a nearby dual carriageway.

Rock the Park has now been pushed back twice, after covid ended plans in 2021. 

In the postponement statement, organisers said the 2023 festival would take place in May, but that has now changed to the weekend of August 4-6. 

There also looks set to be a change of site, with plans currently being submitted to Wrexham Council.

Organisers say that all headliners will still be playing in 2023, with a number of new artists set to be announced this week, it is hoped this may sway people to keep hold of their tickets for next year. 

A Rock the Park spokesperson said: "We feel bringing you the new lineup prior to the refund window opening will be beneficial to better help you make your decision on whether to keep your ticket and roll it over to 2023 or request a refund.

"The festival is also in the process of moving to a new site within Wrexham and a new site and plans are being drawn up and it is located one mile from the original site.

"Plans are currently being submitted to the council for approval and we are certain Rock The Park will take place on the 4th, 5th & 6th August 2023 bigger and better than ever before. We will announce the new site once agreements are fully in place."

Organisers say people will be able to claim their refunds from the postponed event, on July 31, the same day tickets go on sale for the 2023 festival. 

The spokesperson added: "To reflect the new headliner booked for 2023 ticket prices will increase quite substantially as the new headliner is the without doubt the biggest dance artist to ever perform in North Wales.

"We promise the wait for Rock The Park 2023 will be worth it as we bring you the biggest and best Rock The Park you have ever seen to date.

"We have run the event successfully for five years and 2023 will be the party of all parties to remember."
