Sŵn Festival announce second batch of artists for 2022

Making its established return across the city of Cardiff this October 21st to 23rd, Sŵn Festival has today excitedly announced its second wave of artists set to join the bill. Marking its first full scale event since 2019, the festival's celebration is the pinnacle in new music seekers calendars, and this year's event looks set to pick up where they left off with a plethora of names ready to ignite the capital. 

In addition to the names, today also sees the festival announce its venues for this year's event with ten stages taking place across seven locations in Cardiff: Clwb Ifor Bach (two stages), Fuel Rock Club, Jacobs Market (three stages), The Moon, O'Neills, Tiny Rebel, Tramshed (Friday-only)

Speaking of the latest additions for this year's festival, Clwb Ifor Bach and Sŵn Festival live manager Adam Williams offers: "We’re incredibly excited with the second wave of acts that we’re announcing for Sŵn this year. We had the privilege of hosting Sorry here earlier this year, and we’re delighted to have the chance to host them again. Joe & the Shitboys caused chaos at Green Man Festival this year; seeing them do the same in a smaller space is going to be a whole lot of fun.

"We strengthen the local line up with our second wave too, with CVC who have had a huge summer playing Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape, Truck Festival and tons more, Sŵnami who are on the verge of releasing their highly anticipated second album and Greta Isaac, whose latest string of singles and EP has proved that she’s one of pop’s most innovative Welsh artists today.

"In addition to our usual Womanby Street venues family, we welcome O’Neills, Tramshed and Jacobs (who will be hosting three stages this year) back to the festival
