Cardiff multi-venue festival Swn returns for its tenth year, with one of its strongest bills in recent memory. Boasting the cream of the Welsh crop including returning hometown hero Meilyr Jones at the brand new Turnstile venue. Garage poppers Peaness and Cymru- electro pop star Ani Glass offer exciting sounds, meanwhile innovative psych kosmiche artist R.Seiliog and Cate Le Bon feature on a strong looking Turnstile Stage. A scattering of emerging acts from further outside of Wales including Dream Wife, Rhain, Martha Ffion and Braids. Meanwhile nostalgia is at hand over at the music box as reuniting Welsh acts Truckers of Husk and Derrero offer good a heartwarming snapshot of Swn’s past.
Here are some of our picks from this year’s event on our handy playlist.
