Chart-topping 90’s band ‘Republica’ are set headline M-Fest, Mold’s newest music festival.

The festival takes place on Saturday 4th July on Kendricks Field in Mold.

Republica, best known for their hit single ‘Ready to Go’ sold an incredible 3 million albums between 1996 and 1999.

They clinched Top 5 slots in the UK, America and Europe with platinum sales across the globe.

The band are now back and have been very active recently, releasing their highly acclaimed new EP ‘Christiana Obey’ and undertaken a sold out UK tour and selected European festival appearances including the prestigious Isle Of Wight Festival, Norway’s Midnattsrocken Festival, The Welsh GB Rally and Hanover’s Ferryman Festival in Germany.

Their iconic front woman, Saffron, Tim Dorney (keyboard) and Johnny Male (guitar) rode the Britpop wave of female-fronted rock bands like Sleeper, Elastica, Garbage and Lush, injecting it with their self-dubbed “techno-pop, punk rock” sound. 

Republica’s first album is being reissued this year as a Deluxe Triple CDs to be followed by the highly anticipated new album. 

Jane Evans, M-Fest Committee member said “Republica are busy touring throughout the summer and we are absolutely thrilled that they have added M-Fest to their extensive festival list and we looking forward to welcoming them to Mold on the 4th July.”

The M-Fest musical line up will also feature  some of the best bands from around North Wales and Cheshire including Soul Jacker, 50 Hertz, Yubaba and Jonathan Markwood’s Hoo-Hah Conspiracy with more acts to be announced. 

The festival will also incorporate festival stalls, a bar and food .
