Hello hello hello
We’re counting down the weeks now until this year’s Sŵn. There’s oodles of bands now announced, so there’s loads for you to listen to. We’ve announced a pre-party on the Friday night too with the ace JUNGLE Djing and local hero DUCK HOUSE DJing too. Tickets for this pre-party go on sale on 5th October, but you can join the waiting list by downloading the DICE app to your smartphone. Join our Facebook event for it here too.
This year’s Sŵn will take place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November 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.
You can buy weekend tickets or just a day ticket if you can only make it along for one of the days – all the links you need are across this site.

[ps in case you’re new to Wales or Welsh, then Sŵn is pronounced ‘soon’ and is Welsh for ‘sound’] x
