more details and the full line up (which would take up way too much space on this blog)

Swn curator, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, says of the event:

“For the second year, the Swn weekend in Cardiff is going to be another mouth watering weekend with some of the best new bands around, incredible art and film and a full three days of music conferences. From the Thursday evening to Sunday night, there’ll be music in Cardiff’s venues from across Wales and from around the world; laptop geniuses, banging bands, superfly DJs and acoustic troubadours. Welsh legends Young Marble Giants playing at the National Museum of Wales will be special and there are even more Welsh headliners this year; Euros Childs, Future of the Left, High Contrast and The Pipettes. Bands are coming from across Wales to play, and the line-up is an eclectic mix of thrilling new music. And all with a backdrop of Cardiff city centre and its enthusiastic promoters and venues. We’re very excited about Swn 08; it’s going to be a weekend to remember and not to be missed!”
