The Festival will open on Friday night 24th August with a headline performance from New Zealand soprano, Hayley Westenra.
Hayley, who made her debut performance in North Wales at the tender age of 16 when she performed at the Faenol Festival in 2003, expressed her delight to be performing:
“I am thrilled to be returning to North Wales this summer and performing at Gŵyl Gobaith – it’s always such a pleasure to perform in Wales, the audiences are always so welcoming and it truly is such a beautiful part of the world”.

This event is confirmed by Hayley's management.
