It's with a heavy heart, but also a great sense of relief that I have to announce that there will be no Wrong Festival in 2019. If any of you have ever put on an event like this I'm sure you can empathise with the amount of work that goes into it, and the pressure involved. Planning begins the summer of the year before, and when putting on a festival takes over your life for the best part of your year it begins to take its toll. Wrong is mainly organised just by myself, and while its been a success, the amount of financial risk taken, and the effect on my mental health has been too large to ignore. I'd rather bow out with two years of amazing shows and fond memories than have the day become a millstone around my neck in the future, which is a definite danger, especially when trying to balance a full time job, running a record label and being in a touring band. Some incredible moments came from Wrong, including getting to work with some genuine musical heroes of mine, and I've made a great many friends because of it. I know the festival means a lot to many of you, but right now I simply can't keep up with what's needed to do it justice. It may return in the future, but if and when is uncertain for now. My love goes out to everyone who's helped the festival, the wonderful artists who've played, and most of all, the excellent people who made up the crowds. Keep making music, and look after yourselves and each other.

Something WRONG is happening.
WRONG Festival are extremely pleased to announce the full line up for the unmissable second-year outing of the vital oddball rock music festival. Set to take place on the 28th of April 2018 at Liverpool Docklands, they’ll be shining a spotlight on talent from both the burgeoning local, and UK-wide, Freakscene.

Joining the already-announced 2018 headliners, cult Cardiff rock band FUTURE OF THE LEFT (feat. members of Mclusky and Million Dead), organisers are pleased to reveal that MUGSTAR will be performing alongside DAMO SUZUKI as his backing band for the evening.
Also appearing as part of the newly announced clutch will be: politically-minded Manchester noiserockers GNOD, Britain’s dirtiest doom-metal band CONAN, abrasive Bristol noiseout bunch SPECTRES, noisy progressive Leeds artpunks BILGE PUMP, fellow Yorkshire post-punks THANK, London alternative math-rock outfit DEATH AND THE PENGUIN, rising Brummie garage punks TABLE SCRAPS, Leeds noiserock trio IRK, local garage noise quartet OHMNS, the stoner/doom of BURIED SLEEPER, and acerbic experimental punks ALPHA MAID.
Also populating the stages across the three venues will be further newly revealed additions including London rock duo TOKYO TABOO, garage rock two piece SONS, psych-tinged jazz punks LUCY LEAVE, Liverpool prog beasts BISCH NADAR, and heavy punks SALT THE SNAIL in a special VS set with BLEACH SWEETS, in which they'll face off with alternate songs picking who goes first with a coin toss. Joining them will be industrial noise band LONESAW, Bristol dreampop artist PATCHWORK GUILT, noisy psych-rock quintet PSYBLINGS, Liverpool rockers SWEARWOLVES, and a special DJ set from former MUMS drummer LEWIS O’NEILL.
Elsewhere on the bill, festival organisers Loner Noise Records will be showcasing their own raft of talent with appearances from their roster including weirdrock trio ELEVANT, hotly-tipped artrock pals SPQR, doom-groove noise-mongers GRAVVES, singer-sludgewriter KAPIL SESHASAYEE, garage punks BLACK PUDDING and industrial post-punk band NASTY LITTLE LONELY.
WRONG Festival organiser Michael Edward commented on the additions: "I'm incredibly proud of this line up. I always try to make my way to as many sets as possible when I put on the festival, in between all the running around organising things, and this year I'm going to have my work cut out. Gnod made my favourite record of last year. Conan are legends, and are one of Liverpool's greatest bands. Spectres are an absolute hellscape.
“I've done my best to spoil everyone for choice from the top of the bill to the bottom, and with a breadth of genres from punk rock to psychedelia to doom metal to noise and even to dream pop. Some of these acts are genuine musical heroes of mine, so it's an honour to be able to put on an event like this. It's also nice to feature most of the Loner Noise roster once again. Really it's just a cross section of bands that I adore, and I hope everyone else will too."
