"The second wave of artists adds another layer of amazing talent to the line-up. With artists coming to Wales from across the world, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the unity of music in the place we call home.

“We can’t wait to enjoy the eclectic mix of sounds from iconic names to fresh new faces in the music industry. At Clwb, we have always been committed to supporting new and upcoming acts and the new music strategy should see that we can continue to do that.”
