★ Sŵn - 21st October 2017 - £30 ADV. ★
When this Sŵn adventure began a decade ago, a big driving force for us was discovery. We wanted people to come to Cardiff, perhaps for the first time, and see the City we loved and called home. We wanted the Welsh and wider music industry to pick up on emerging bands from Wales. We wanted folk to wander through new spaces or come across venues they’d never stepped into. We wanted people to hear great new bands.
We’re proud that all of this happens at Sŵn. Discovering music, venues, places, people, language and the city is a key part of what makes the festival magic.
This year’s Sŵn Festival may feel a little different but discovery will remain at the heart of everything we offer. As we do this, it remains vital that the freshest names aren’t trampled by the more established ones. So in this new look Sŵn we’ve also built the final day of the festival upon the foundation that started us off so many years ago. A single Saturday where you can buy one wristband, move between venues, and feast upon an array of wonderful new acts. We tried to come up with a catchy new name for it, but for so many, it will always be Sŵn.
Where we once span this out across a weekend, we’ve made it leaner and meaner and packed it into a single day. With the festival now reaching across a whole four weeks, this Saturday will serve as a climactic finish to the festival. With many people travelling into Cardiff for this closing weekend we’ve kept Sunday clear for you to nurse hangovers and tired feet to head slowly home, ears packed full of great new discoveries.
The artists featuring in the line-up are as follows:
Adwaith || Alice Jemima || Ardyn || ARGRPH || Bad Sounds || Billie Marten || Boy Azooga || Buzzard || CAMPFIRE SOCIAL || Caro || Chartreuse || Darkhouse Family || Daedelus || Dan Stock || Danielle Lewis Music || False Advertising || Himalayas || ISLAND || Jack Ellis Music || Joel Avaient || John Smith || JW Ridley || Keeva || Keir || Kidsmoke || La Forme || Local Enemy || Los Blancos || LUNA TIDES || MarthaGunn || Matt Maltese || Niterooms || Phalcons || pink kink || Rainbow Maniac || Sam Fender || Sea Girls || Shadowlark || shame || Sock || Swedish Death Candy || The Caspiens || The Pitchforks || The Tates || Trudy and the Romance || White Kite || YOWL...

Ed Solo is one of the finest engineers/producers in the dance music business, He honed his skills as a junglist before ducking and diving through every style of broken beat going - his stamp on electronic music runs as deep as his subs.It started in London where Ed cut his teeth at the controls in the mid nineties by engineering Black Twang, Elizabeth Troy & Roots Manuva before laying down groundbreaking collaborations with jungle kingpin DJ Brockie including ‘Represents’ and ‘Echo Box’. Next was Brighton and into a studio above Krafty Kuts record shop where Ed produced many seminal Breakbeat tracks which led to 2007’s timeless album ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ alongside Skool of Thought and Darrisson. The album dropped a systematic stream of blazing tracks including ‘When I Was A Yout’, ‘We Play The Music’ and ‘Love Your Life’ and this work cemented him as a worldwide household name.Since then Ed has been enjoying making a wide range of styles but he’s best known for his own crowd pleasing Reggae Drum & Bass tracks from remixing Chronixx to Sizzla to original recordings with Elijah and Stickybudz. Amongst the piles of unreleased material there is a follow up album forming with himself and Darrison which promises to be even more eclectic than the last.MediaEd’s popularity is apparent with a quick look to his social media channels which are buzzing with fans where his mixes and tracks receive 100,000’s of hits.Soundcloud total over 1.2 million hits.YouTube total over 5,000,000 hits. Facebook over 35,000 organic fans.
Performing at some of the most prestigious festivals going including Glastonbury, Shambala, BoomTown and Bestival, Ed is infamous for his scorching sets. He carries on to tour across continents to heaving crowds all over Europe, in the US, Canada, Russia, Eastern Europe the UK and Australia.
Ed Solo is not one to be missed!
The Don Fox scandal
The Don Fox Scandal from Chepstow and Monmouth is a four man band of the most upbeat gypsy-swing lovin' young gentlemen you've set your eyes upon. Always sighted in their dapper attire, never do they fail to get the crowds jumping to the thumping beats of their tunes - made up of the wondrous concoction of Ska, Gypsy-Swing, and Funk.
They have played at such festivals as Green Gathering, Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Bristol Harbour, Bristol Fringe, Humble by Nature, Monmouth, Coleford, and such famous venues as Thekla, Louisiana, Golden Lion, Chepstow Castle and many more.
The Stalks originally a Reggae/Ska/Punk band formed in Cornwall, consists of a group of five members who evolved listening to a mixture of genres. Sublime were the band who they always warmed to, and helped shape their performances. Their unique style bridged the gap between Punk and Reggae, which became a popular gig for all to attend.
They have performed at a series of gigs in the South West in the last 6 years, including One Love Festival, Boardmasters and Nass. Along side this they have played in bars and pubs across Cornwall up to Brixton and all in between.

Otter Wales presents
“Effortlessly eccentric, Sleeptalking bring a modern twist to unadulterated rock n’ roll, indulging in the glamour of grunge
theatrics and engaging the audience with their flamboyant ascetic.” - Bristol Live Magazine
Having released their debut EP ‘Oh Isn’t it Strange?’ earlier in the year, the band began grabbing people’s attention with their lead single ‘Glasshouse', a track that was featured as John Kennedy’sX-Posure Big One on Radio X. In support of the EP Sleeptalking completed their first UK headline tour with a raucous, sold out, hometown show. High point of the summer came at this year’s Glastonbury where they played to, amongst others, Michael Eavis, who had personally chosen the band to perform at this year’s festival.
The boys are now heading back into the studio to record their next EP before setting off on another UK tour in the autumn.

SWINE LANGUAGE presents:
BOY HARSHER (USA - ASCETIC HOUSE / DKA RECORDS)
Formed in Savannah (GA), Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance.
Their upcoming 'Country Girl' EP via Ascetic House is set for release this October and will be a sure fire record of 2017. Watch the video for new track 'Motion' here - www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeSN4PntOos
