This year’s Sŵn will take place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November (a little later than usual due to the Rugby World Cup) across a bundle of venues in Cardiff. If you’re new to the festival, all you need to know is that one wristband gets you in to all the venues (subject to capacity), as you walk/run/meander around to discover as much new music as possible.
Sŵn is all about music discovery, so though you may well know a few of the acts on the line up, we’re pretty confident you won’t know them all, and if you know none, then even better. Welcome! This is where the fun starts. There’s links to all the music on the acts profiles, and we’ll post playlists of their songs too. You’ve plenty of time to listen to them all and start to pick the ones you like. All you need to know is that we handpick every band. They’re all tip top. Just ask any regular Sŵnster, or know that in recent years the likes of Alt J, Ben Howard, Wolf Alice, The Vaccines, Disclosure, Foxes, Lucy Rose, Drenge, John Grant and many more have all played in small venues at Sŵn when perhaps only a handful of people knew who they were, but all will affirm they were unforgettable shows.
Earlybird Weekend Tickets are onsale now through DICE, (with no booking fee) or through our site here priced £42 (or £21 if you’re aged 14-17). [There’s some restrictions on which venues you can access and until what time if you’re under 18 – all info is on the venues pages of this site.]. We’ll advise when the Earlybirds sellout and then Advance and Day Tickets will become available, or we’ll do a switch on September 15th – so best buy before then to save money. We’re delighted to be bringing DICE into Wales in Cardiff – this app means you can find loads of cool shows in Cardiff, and you pay no booking fees either!
There’s more to come over the next few months – it’ll be a busy, fun weekend. Keep Friday night free too – we might (well, ok, we do) have a couple of bonus, brillant things for those with added bounce…
