Today, we are excited to announce that joining our 20th anniversary event at The Gate in Cardiff on Saturday 30th of September 2023, are one of Wales’s best-kept secrets, righteous bilingual noise pop trio Chroma, as main supports.

They are gearing up for the release of their debut album and will be joined by master Welsh songsmith Carwyn Ellis of Rio 18, Colorama and The Pretenders live band, who will be playing an exclusive stripped back set, and practitioners of soulful lo-fi pop Papaya Noon, who will ease you into the late afternoon. Finally, on the decks we have former Boomtown booker and local legend Kaptin who will be bringing the party with his encyclopedic collection of hip hop, soul, disco music and beyond.

They join a bill that already boasts three awesome acts. Two-time Welsh Music Prize winners and GIITTV favourites Adwaith who will be headlining, emerging artist The Honest Poet, who blends soul, hip hop, and pop into personal songs full of heart. Opening the show are one of our tips for 2023, Half Happy, a wonderful bittersweet indie pop band who have captured our hearts in recent months.

Doors are 3pm and the event starts at 4pm until late. Tickets are twenty pounds in advance and more on the door, book here.

This event is in conjunction with our friends at Joyzine who are also celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, we will be helping promote events around this landmark in due course. Also the charity Hope Not Hate and the fine online publication the Zine.
