It’s been 6 months since we were asked to take on running and booking the festival and we’re super happy with what we’ve produced. Now all we have left is to deliver it! Sŵn Festival has been a vital part of the Cardiff music calendar for the last 12 years and it’s been really exciting for us at Clwb to build on that success – we hope we’ve created something special and that people continue to enjoy this festival for many more years to come”.
