Reincarnated as a venue for live music, Splott Warehouse will reopen its doors for Day of the Dead this Halloween.
The electronic event – one of the biggest of its scale – promises visual tricks ‘n’ treats, food, drink and music from heavyweights Netsky, Wilkinson, Mike Skinner and more.
The closure of spots like The Coal Exchange has left a searing hole in the capital’s cultural fabric, one that Splott might work to level.
“Cardiff suffers a huge lack of mid-capacity underground venues that can bridge the gap between a Clwb Ifor Bach, The Great Hall and a Motorpoint Arena,” says Tudor of Little Bigfoot Promotions, the organisers.
Last year, Splott joined the repertoire of successful venues born of the redevelopment of old structures in Cardiff.
Perhaps there’s hope for live music yet.
