Adwaith... National treasure already?

Swn Festival
Friday Oct 21st - Sun 23rd October, 2022
Cardiff, Wales

This weekend sees the 15th Swn Festival in Cardiff.

Originally founded in 2007 by BBC DJ and Television Presenter Huw Stephens after he visited SXSW Festival in Austin Texas as a showcase for bands from all over the UK. Swn these days is organised by Clwb Ifor Bach, though, over the three days it uses many different venues in the city centre.

The event also highlights what a lovely city has become over the last 20 years or so. Great venues, - in Spillers Records the oldest record shop in the world and in Kelly's the oldest second hand record shop in the world - plus plenty of decent places to eat and drink or just hang out until the music starts.

Bands/Artists playing that are must sees include Adwaith (who's song Eto you'll probably hear everywhere), Sweet Baboo, Gindrinker, She's Got Spies, Billy Nomates, Lovely Eggs, Eadyth, Snapped Ankles, The Orielles, and Omaloma, but keep your ears open because there are always surprise guests.

A chilled weekend,soundtracked by great music in a lovely city. What more could you ask for?

All About and Contributors


Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]


If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
