The final wave of acts has been announced for this year's Sŵn Festival in Cardiff.

The three-day event will again descend on various venues in the city centre of the Welsh capital between October 18 and 20 to host an eclectic line up, featuring established and up-and-coming acts from the world of indie, pop and rock, to name a few.

Guto Brychan, Chief Executive of Clwb Ifor Bach said: 

"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.”

Live Manager of the venue, Adam Williams also commented:

"We’re so pleased to see how far the festival has come since we took over last year. This year has so many exciting artists and even more events that we hope will strengthen the music scene in Cardiff and help those that want to be part of the industry.

"It feels really good to build on the success of the past 12 years of Sŵn festival and continue to unite people in so many different creative ways. We’re looking forward to seeing it all come to life in five weeks.”
