Sŵn Festival is a four day multi-venue new music festival, which will be held between Thursday 18th - Sunday 21st October 2012 at various venues in and around Cardiff city centre.

Since 2007 Cardiff has played host to the annual Sŵn Festival, bringing some of the newest and most exciting local, national and international acts to the Welsh capital. The festival is now moving into its 6th year, with the most ambitious festival plans to date.

Whilst still focusing on new and emerging acts, the festival will also play host to some well established headline acts, as well as broadening the programme to include arts based fringe events.

With acts such as Django Django, Gallows, Liars, John Grant, Dry The River, Errors, Gulp, Islet, Lanterns on the Lake, Micachu & The Shapes, Scritti Politti and Rangda already announced, Sŵn Festival 2012 is shaping up quite nicely!

“This trend-bucking Cardiff gathering proves it’s the best little festival the UK has to offer.” - The NME (2011)
