Ed has previously worked at Swn Festival and hopes that the Cardiff Music Awards will become a similar annual event

The aim of the Cardiff Music Awards is to celebrate the music scene and give credit to its musicians, organisations and other individuals whose achievements may go unnoticed.

Ed Townend said, “I hope to highlight the great talent and breadth of the local Cardiff music scene with the awards and honour the hard work of those within it.”

He added, “The idea of doing it every year would be based on the success of the process and the public opinion in relation to the results.”
