Wrecking Ball have just completed their first summer on the festival circuit and what a summer it was. festival organisers have been keen to add something really different into their lineup that both capitalises on the growing popularity of country music, yet is also easily able to "cross over" to a wide and diverse audience. In 2017 Wrecking Ball appeared in opening supporting and headline slots in festivals across The South west, including being the opening act for the famous Sheppy's Cider at their SheppyFest 2017, which this year was headlined by the Hoosiers. Other festivals in 2017 included headline billing at Oakfest 2017, as well as hewishstock, Hobphin Festival and Rimpfest 2017.
