Swansea’s Welsh language festival, Gŵyl Tawe, will return once again to the National Waterfront Museum on Saturday the 8th of June 2024.

Following a successful first year at its new home in 2023, the festival will once again see performances by a whole host of alternative, contemporary artists who use the Welsh language in varied and exciting ways. The live music will be hosted across both the festival’s main open-air stage and the Ocean Room stage in the heart of the museum, with the full line up set to be announced in early March.

The event is completely free to attend, with the museum opening at 10AM and the entertainment running until late. As well as the live music, there will also be interactive theatre shows for families, performances from local schools, and a variety of creative workshop activities delivered from our partners’ stalls in the museum foyer. The event will be delivered in partnership with Museum Wales, with further support from Swansea Council, Creative Wales, Gower College Swansea, and The Bunkhouse Swansea.

Here is this year’s line-up!
