Laugharne Festival 2016

Dear Wilko fans.

We were surprised to receive a number of messages from fans enquiring as to why Wilko has ‘pulled out’ of Laugharne Festival this year – Wilko was not actually available for this date in the first place, so his subsequent inclusion on the bill was incorrect.

We are sorry if any of you were misled and bought tickets on the understanding that Wilko would be present, or indeed if you were concerned as to what had happened – we are happy to assure you that Wilko is well and looking forward to the UK tour which begins in April.

Best wishes and thanks, as always, for your support,

Team Wilko.
