Sŵn Festival 2023 - first line-up announcement (Jessica Winter, Lynks, Heartworms)

It feels like it was only a blink of an eye ago since we were last amongst the warming grasp of Cardiff's SWN Festival, but the South Wales inaugural new music bash is back to unveil its 20 For 23: sharing twenty of the most exciting emerging acts to feature at this year's festival and the first names announced for its 2023 edition, which will be taking place across the Welsh capital from October 20th to 22nd. 

Speaking on the wonders Sŵn Festival has in store this year, live manager Adam Williams shares: "Sŵn books artists at various stages in their career, but with a focus on emerging talent. Some are more established touring internationally, others are gearing up to release their debut album and there are artists nobody knows exist yet. It's most often those lesser known artists who excite us the most! The festival welcomes around 140 artists each year and we normally announce around 70 in our first wave. What we wanted to achieve in 2023 was to announce just 20 up and comers who we believe should be on every music listeners' radar. An opportunity to focus on those artists who are breaking through or those finally getting their time in the sun. We believe our audience trusts and wants to know who we are listening to. And that simply is what Swn 20 for 23 is all about. We'll be working with this years 20 for 23 artists to deliver some pretty special moments across that weekend in October and we can't wait to share that with you."
