Wakestock Festival Pwllheli 2012


Organisers at this years Wakestock Festival in Pwllheli which runs between Friday 6th and Sunday 8th  July are preparing for potential traffic management issues by introducing a park and ride to ease car parks on site and dilute the amount of traffic in the immediate surrounding areas.


Bex Tappin Wakestock Public Relations officer said “The build up of the festival is progressing well and on schedule at Wakestock.  Like the rest of the country the site has received a significant amount of rainfall over the past few months and weeks.  Due to this the car parking fields are fairly soft and this may cause some difficulty when driving on or off the site.


“Wakestock has therefore arranged a park and ride location at Pwllheli Marina in the Yacht Club car park where festival goers can park up and meet the shuttle bus service which drops off right at the festival entrance. The shuttle buses run on a continuous loop between Pwllheli Maes, the Yacht Club and the Wakestock Festival site at Pen Rhos. This facility is also available for people dropping off and picking up festival goers.  The car parks at the festival site will be open but it is recommended that car users use the park and ride as an alternative to avoid potential delays.” 


North Wales Police are supporting and encouraging use of the park and ride Inspector Dewi Jones adding “ It is hoped this will not only ease access for festival goers to and from the site but also the local community and other roads users who are going about their daily business.  The weather will obviously have an effect on the site making progress in and out of car parks slower than normal so I’d just ask for a little patience and factor in just a little bit longer getting out if assistance is required by some motorists.  And with the weather in mind I’d also advise suitable and appropriate clothing for the conditions”
