Brand new festival ‘Pwer’ is set to hit Cardiff on the 6th May 2018. With the name coming from the Welsh world for ‘power’, the festival aims to give a voice to the young musical talents of both the city and the country.
The brainchild of two Cardiff-based students, the bank-holiday musical extravaganza will take place at Gwdihw Café Bar, a vibrant independent venue in the heart of the city. With strong ties to the ‘Save Womanby Street’ campaign, it seems a fitting host for a festival set on empowering the often-overlooked voices of young Welsh musicians.
With the first line-up being announced in the near future, both national and local bands are set to perform across two stages. Due to the expectation of a crowd formed largely of 18-25 year-olds, there will also be a student discount available on all tickets.
