Swn Festival is the flagship new music event for Wales. Each Autumn Swn brings together emerging artists from Wales, the UK and beyond to takeover grassroots venues and interesting spaces across the capital City of Wales - Cardiff. Small in size but big in impact, Swn continues to innovate, excite and support the music scene in Wales.

STILL PROMOTING THE BEST BANDS ACROSS SOUTH WALES.
Swn are available to programme music at your festival or event. We bought together the entire music programme for two editions of the Dinefwr Literature Festival, the inaugural Cardiff Triathlon and have curated stages at Green Man Festival, In The City, and Camden Crawl amongst others. Each year we also bring a selection of great new Welsh music to a stage at the wonderful Festival Number 6 in Portmeirion.
Huge congratulation to Meilyr Jones – the deserved winner of 2016's Welsh Music Prize.

The Welsh Music Prize was created in 2011 by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and music promoter John Rostron.
The prize was originally launched to coincide with Sŵn festival – one of the UKs best independent music festivals – sharing the same values to celebrate the finest music made in Wales or by Welsh people around the world. Warmly received by the Welsh and international music industry, its now grown into its own, taking place each Autumn in Cardiff.
With a commitment to diversity and fine production, Welsh Music Prize will continue to champion the best new music from Wales.
Sefydlwyd y Wobr Gerddoriaeth Gymreig yn 2011 gan Huw Stephens a John Rostron.
Cychwynnodd y wobr mewn cyd weithrediad a Gwyl Sŵn, er mwyn dathlu y gyfoeth gerddorol sydd yng Nghymru, a records wedi eu creu yng Nghymru neu Cymry o amgylch y byd. Mae’r wobr wedi bod yn llwyddiant mawr, gyda cryn sylw iddi yng Nghymru ac o amgylch y byd. Mae’r noson wobrwyo yn un arbennig, ac yn digwydd yn yr Hydref.
Gyda’r pwyslais ar greadigrwydd a chynhyrchu, mae’r Wobr Geddoriaeth Gymreig yn parhau i hyrwyddo a dathlu y gerddoriaeth newydd orau o Gymru.
