Taking place from 20th-22nd October in Cardiff, Sŵn Festival have announced the first names joining this year’s line-up! Sharing their “20 for 23”, twenty of the most exciting emerging acts to feature at this year’s festival, among the first additions are Jessica Winter, Lynks, Baba Ali, KEG, Heartworms, Westerman, O. and Low Hummer. “Sŵn books artists at various stages in their career, but with a focus on emerging talent,” live manager Adam Williams shares. “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.” Check out the line-up below. It’s here! Our first wave of 2023 🤩 What’s 20 For ‘23 all about, We hear you ask? 20 must-see emerging artists appearing at this year’s festival, that we think should be on every music listener’s radar.
