Surf Snowdonia to play host to the first Electric Wave Festival this summer

               Funfilled events are one of the benefits to purchasing one of our holiday homes for sale, Ruthin and the surrounding areas have a whole host of music festivals over the coming months, with the Electric Wave Festival making its debut this summer. Taking place at one of North Wales’s top tourist attractions, Surf Snowdonia will host the first ever Electric Wave Festival from July 14th – 16th with iconic club promoters Cream, who ran famous club nights in Liverpool and Ibiza, will host a tent with Welsh electronic stars, K-Klass and the Happy Mondays’ maraca waving legend Bez are set to headline the three-day festival.Other performers that so far have been announced include Ragga DJ General Levy, turntable pioneer DJ Yoda as well as live music courtesy of Showhawk, former Stone Roses guitarist Aziz Ibrahim, Baby Queens and the UK Chili Peppers who are set to rock the 3,000+ crowd. Ed Mackie who is organising the event spoke of his hope of turning the event into a regular staple for North Wales as well as the UK music scene. Ed, who has previously worked on Festival No 6, Glass Butter Beach, Cream Fields and Wakestock, said: “This is going to be a much more intimate event with a really cool vibe and lots of things going on. Ever since I first saw Surf Snowdonia, I knew it would sit really well with this kind of event. It will be very relaxed and fun, rather than having the obvious pop acts. It’s such a unique location and we have a number of credible acts who will put on a good performance and make it a great event for everyone. We still have a couple of international acts to announce and a number of DJ’s and local bands.” Taking full advantage of the facilities available at the site, there will be a surf competition, a crash and splash lagoon, skate ramps, surf yoga on SUP boards, fairground rides, sizzling barbecues and a wide variety of food stalls offering up delicious nibbles.For those who want a bit of relaxation amongst the adrenaline fuelled activities will be able to do so in style with the Electric Wave Festival offering glamping pods, hot tubs and a log cabin sauna. Business development manager for Surf Snowdonia, Justin Everley added: “Surf Snowdonia is so much more than an inland surf lagoon – it’s a fantastic venue in a knockout setting, our focus this year has been to develop a programme of accessible, family-friendly events.The festival will feature some really well known UK artists as well as some local bands – North Wales has a really vibrant music and comedy scene, and we felt it was important for us to reflect that.” There have been a few great events held at Surf Snowdonia since it first opened its doors, to see what’s waiting for you, just a short drive from our North Wales holiday parks watch the video of Redbull’s Unleashed event below:                    Other articles you may also want to read:Hysterical comedy events near our North Wales caravan parksThe UK’s first alpine coaster is heading to Snowdonia National Park
