Our new one-day DimSwn Festival will take place on Sat 11th April 2015 in various venues across Cardiff. 39 bands are now confirmed to play, across 7 stages. Tickets are on sale now.
We did promise last October, with our Dim Swn event, that we were taking some time out to re-imagine Swn. Well, that Dim Swn day was terrific fun. It was energising and it sold out in advance too. This new April edition of DimSwn is inspired by that. We absolutely love making Swn happen. Each time it’s over we always wish that we were doing it again immediately, rather than in a year’s time. We want to be able to move quickly as we hear emerging new bands and new music, and bring them to you at the moment it counts. A year is a long, long time to wait for the next event, so we thought, “Why wait?”. This one-dayer in April will complement our autumn event, and be a new way to introduce a whole host of new bands to Swn-goers.
Tickets are £25 through this site, in person from Spillers Records in Cardiff, or via www.seetickets.com. There’s also tickets available for £12 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.
Swn will also return in the Autumn, on the weekend of 7th and 8th of November. A little later than usual due to the Rugby World Cup. More details of that event will emerge in the early Summer as this Swn finishes and we look ahead.
Also, we now promote shows regularly in Wales, mostly in Cardiff, through our sister company under the banner of ‘Swn Presents’. You can see who we have coming up (as well as who you’ve missed) at www.swnpresents.com – there’s a separate email list to sign up to there if you’d like to hear as we confirm new shows there too.
