About Swn

Sŵn Festival is an award-winning multi-venue music festival based entirely in Cardiff’s city centre, which has been running since 2007. Since it’s inception, the festival has been focused on new music, emerging artists and homegrown acts.

We take over a great big handful of our favourite venues and spaces in Cardiff and curate an electrifying weekend of refreshing music that exhilarates us and you. For three days, Cardiff city centre is transformed into a hub for music-makers and music-fanatics where you get to explore this wonderful city and discover remarkable new music.

The festival isn’t exclusive to any particular style of music. We book artists that excite us and we hope they excite you too.

Check out this year’s line up here and explore the playlist.

We also post news, updates, festival tips, new music and more on the festival’s Facebook event.

See you in October!
