The final line-up for Sŵn Festival’s Discovery Day – featuring a total of 45 acts has been announced for shows across Cardiff on Saturday 21st of October. Featuring amongst many others fast-rising West Walian trio Adwaith, Bangor group Yr Eir, down-tempo of Hengoed natives Niterooms, LA producer Daedelus and the tipped local psych-pop of Boy Azooga
This year rather than a weekend festival Swn is a series of events spread across various venues in Cardiff from the 21st of September through to the 21st of October.
Sŵn Festival organiser John Rostron said: “Discovering music, venues, places, people, language and the city is a key part of what makes the festival magic. We’re proud that all of this is still happening as part of Sŵn. We’re delighted to announce the full line-up and are really excited to be able to bring such an eclectic mix of musical talent to Cardiff. Discovery Day is definitely going to finish Sŵn off with a bang!”
