Cardiff Council have announced Live and Unlocked: Four nights of live music at Cardiff Castle to support grassroots venues.

Kicking off the weekend will be indie rising stars Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard on August 27, who'll be joined by Panic Shack and The Bug Club. Yasmine and the Euphoria will top the bill the next day, following a set from special guests Year Of The Dog, while Those Damn Crows are set to headline August 29 with support from Cardinal Black and Scarlet Rebels. 

Closing the weeked on August 30 will be favourites of the Cardiff scene Afro Cluster, who will be joined by The Allergies, Niques and DJ Trishna Jaikara. Tickets for all the shows are on sale now.

The events form part of Cardiff Council's plan developed with Cardiff Music Board to support live music and put culture at the forefront of COVID-19 recovery. The shows will be curated by Clwb Ifor Bach, Porters, Fuel, and  The Moon, respectively, and the venues will also sell the tickets, retain all ticket income, and pay the musicians involved.

Leader of Cardiff Council, and Chair of Cardiff Music Board, Cllr Huw Thomas said:

"Live music venues and musicians have had to deal with huge challenges throughout the course of the pandemic. Even now, as restrictions are relaxed, some challenges remain, but our hope is that by staging this series of events at the Castle, we can support the industry and the people who work in it, and importantly, bring some joy back to the city.

"The last 17 months have been a time when music has perhaps been needed more than ever, so it's been particularly poignant not to be able to see it performed live in public. I've said before that music is a national utility for the soul that requires investment, but it's more than that, it's one of the things that make life worth living.

"We want music and culture to be at the heart of Cardiff's recovery from Covid-19 and I'm delighted that we can now start making that happen, with four nights of live music celebrating the talent and diversity of Cardiff's music scene."

Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Sport, Cllr Peter Bradbury commented: "We've been waiting a long time for the restart of live music in Cardiff. Before the pandemic we set out a bold ambition for Cardiff to become an internationally recognised Music City. Now is the time to reset and start the hard work of making that ambition a reality."

Chief Executive of Clwb Ifor Bach, Guto Brychan added: "We're really excited to have the opportunity to stage a night as part of the Live and Unlocked sessions at Cardiff Castle. It's been 17 long months since we last staged a live event and the chance to promote great bands in front of an audience in such an iconic setting will be amazing."
