Welsh musos ready to rock Swn Fest

Swn

Swn, Cardiff’s favourite music festival, returns this weekend with a host of raw Welsh talent.

Founded in 2007 by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and local music mogul John Rostron, Swn Fest uncovers talented artists in a series of gigs spanning the city centre.

This year musicians handpicked by BBC Cymru Wales’ Horizons scheme – which promotes Welsh artists to a wider audience – will take to the stage on Saturday at Clwb Ifor Bach.

Festivalgoers can expect a nine-hour music marathon from artists like Dan Bettridge, who said the Horizons scheme has created “real opportunities for the artists involved”.

Dan Bettridge is looking forward to “putting on a party” with other Horizons artists
