DIY Announces Full Sŵn 2013 Stage Details

Pawws, Pinkonoizu, Bo Ningen and more join Wolf Alice and Drenge for DIY’s Cardiff residency.

Last week DIY announced the initial details

of its Sŵn Fest 2013 residency, where we take over the whole of Clwb Ifor Bach during day 2 of the Cardiff festival on Friday 18th October.

The line-up’s since expanded, bringing in a further host of exciting names, including Bo Ningen and London newcomer Pawws.

Sŵn’s also announced its stage times for its 7th year, so you can start planning your weekend.

DIY’s holding the reins of Clwb Ifor Bach’s upstairs and downstairs area - here’s a guide to who’s playing, where and when:


7.30pm, Pawws

: Lucy Taylor’s super-sheened pop is gaining a momentum of its own - new single ‘Outside’ is a huge step forwards.

8.45pm, Wolf Alice: This band need barely any introduction. Their latest ‘Blush’ EP is the latest in a long line of stunning next steps that’ve seen Wolf Alice go from early 2013 hopers to a band who’ve defined the past twelve months.

10pm, Bo Ningen: Japanese punks Bo Ningen released their ‘Line The Wall’ record last year on Stolen Recordings - more recently they’ve collaborated with Savages on the ‘Words To The Blind’ performance in Shoreditch, London.

11.30pm, Pinkunoizu: Ferocious Full Time Hobby signings Pinkonoizu launched their ‘The Drop’ record earlier this year, being described as ‘a blustering cycle of creaky guitars, fluttering percussion and longing vocals’ in a DIY review.

1am, Drenge: It’s late, but it’s Drenge, and there’s no reason not to see one of the fastest-rising bands, post-bumping into Kanye West in the Jools Holland studio. They’re triumphant headliners for Sŵn’s biggest night.


7.30pm, Totem Terrors

: Local Cardiff terrors with enough amped-up ideas to serve the entire festival.

8.30pm, Heavy Petting Zoo: Fellow local lads, with nostalgia lining the seams of the five-pieces early tracks, including this super-stylish ‘Hunger’ demo:

9.15pm, Alex Dingley Band: Off-kilter and backed by a whole load of wit, these folk-poppers released their ‘Built in the ruins of a Monday morning’ LP back in 2010.

Upstairs, Jen Long DJ’s from 2-4am and downstairs it’s the Xerox Club Night from 10pm-4am.
