Festival Guide: SWN Festival 2019

Some of the best new artists on the planet are coming to Cardiff later this year...

Who said festivals should be exclusively a summer thing? Not us that’s for sure! SWN Festival returns this October, taking over Cardiff’s most wonderful venues and we can’t bloody wait. Here’s all the info you need to know. 

What’s it all about then?
SWN is Welsh for noise or sound. It’s an award-winning multi-venue festival in the heart of Cardiff, with the aim of bringing their favourite exciting artists to an enthusiastic city of music-lovers.

This year will be its 13th year and will take place from Friday 18 to Sunday 20 October 2019.
