Our four day multi-venue festival will this year be taking place between Thursday 18 and Sunday 21 October. Along with the first wave of acts to be announced, we’re extra-excited to reveal the re-launch of our festival and brand-spanking-new Facebook page. With the latest timeline feature, we’re encouraging all previous Swn Festival goers to post their favourite memories and past festival highlights.

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.
