Tafwyl announce line-up

Tafwyl festival, held annually in Cardiff, is organised by Menter Caerdydd to celebrate and showcase Welsh language music and culture in our capitol city.

Among the musicians are Geraint Jarman, Mared, Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Ani Glass, Gwilym, and Breichiau Hir. 15 bands will perform across 3 stages, curated by Clwb Ifor Bach. There will also be a performance by Breton band, EMEZI, through a partnership between Tafwyl and the Breton festival Gouel Broadel ar Brezhoneg (GBB). 

The event will be streamed on the digital platform AM, live from the festival’s home at Cardiff Castle, hosted by presenters Huw Stephens, Seren Jones and Tara Bethan.

As well as the live music there will be an exciting mix of discussions, talks and workshops for children in an ambitious programme of varied events.

As Tafwyl celebrates its fifteenth anniversary this year, the intention is to build on the new experiences brought by last year’s virtual festival, continue to maintain its welcoming and inclusive spirit, and turn the challenge into an opportunity to attract new audiences to experience Welsh language arts and culture. 

Some of the festival’s fringe events will kick off on May 8, with one of the main events – Mind Cymru’s charity gig with Eden – taking place on the eve of Tafwyl (14 May).  On Saturday 15 May all the events will be streamed live between 10am and 9pm on AM, then there will be an opportunity to enjoy the festival’s highlights on S4C 8pm, Sunday 13 June.
