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.

October might give you the festival blues but NOT if your in Cardiff. October brings Swn Festival and following the announcement earlier this year of the first wave of acts, its going to be a corker.  

The final wave of 30 more awesome acts who are joining this year’s line-up taking place Wednesday 17 – 20 October 2018 has been announced.

The melodic, DIY aesthetic sounds of The Orielles are welcomed back to Cardiff following a sell-out show in Clwb last February. I had a chat with these teens who absolutely love their alternative US bands from the 90s ahead of their sell-out show. They will open Thursday’s mammoth gig at The Great Hall with Sheffield’s grunge rock brothers, Drenge and Melbourne’s tough surf pop outfit, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.

Welsh indie heroes Estrons have a reputation for their bold, electrifying and unforgettable gigs, which means they’re certainly not one to miss this yearJoining them is Canadian artist Boniface, who unites 80s synth-pop with contemporary 21st century indie-pop to create a rare and electrifying performance.

Set to play at Jacob’s Market on Friday, Cardiff’s own Darkhouse Family will curate a night full of hypnotic, jazz and dance tunes with all-star crew Bugz in the Attic performing live, as well as Esther and Andromeda Jones.
The festival will take place over four days and 17 venues. The venues are Buffalo Bar, Clwb Ifor Bach, Fuel, Gwdihw Café Bar, Kongs, Nos Da, O’Neills, Off Track Café, The Big Top, The Blue Night Café, The Great Hall, The Moon, The Old Market Tavern, Tiny Rebel, Tramshed and Undertone.

Adam Williams, Live Manager at Clwb Ifor Bach who have taken over the reins for 2018 said: 
“We're over the moon to announce the final wave of artists for Swn Festival 2019. 
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!
