UPDATE 15th May 2020

CROWNFEST: - Tribute Band Festival - is cancelled due to the Coronavirus crisis.

The Crown Bar Wexford were looking forward to hosting Crownfest on August 1st and 2nd 2020.

Having reviewed the government guidelines for the various phases and understanding that the risk to the audience and performers is significant, and in view of the serious risk to health and safety of both festival attendees and Crown Bar staff due to the impact of the Coronavirus a decision has been taken to cancel the 2020 event. We look forward to hosting the event in 2021 when the country has returned to normal.

Ticket monies will be returned to all those who have purchased, and we thank you for your support. For online ticket refund please contact Ticketstop.ie (you should also receive an email from Ticketstop regarding the cancellation and refund).

We will announce new dates for 2021 in the next few months when we see how things play out in Ireland with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Tickets purchased at the crown Bar will be refunded in full when the bar reopens up soon.

Stay safe everyone.
