Cardiff is set to host the 2022 BBC Radio 6 Music Festival. The festival takes place from Friday 1st of April to Sunday 3rd of April across venues in the city center. It joins a number of other fantastic Welsh music festivals planned for 2022 as the events industry re-emerges from COVID.

The line-up, announced this morning by Huw Stephen’s and Mary Anne Hobbs, includes brilliant names like Little Simz, Father John Misty & members of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, IDLES, Bloc Party, Johnny Marr, and very special guests Pixies.

Samantha Moy, Head of BBC Radio 6 Music, says: “After two years, it feels very special to say that the 6 Music Festival is back with a bang in Cardiff. This is a city which has always had a thriving music scene. I can’t wait to bring the 6 Music family, of both presenters and listeners, together for the magic of the 6 Music Festival.”

The event will take place across a number of venues in the city center. Each chosen for their respective events, venues include St David’s Hall, The Great Hall and Y Plas in Cardiff University SU and Tramshed.

Huw Stephens says: “It’s great news that the 6 Music Festival is coming to Cardiff. We love our live music here; gigs and club nights are a massive part of what makes Cardiff special, and live music is in our blood. We also love BBC Radio 6 Music and to have this incredible festival happening here at this important time in live music venues’ recovery, is really exciting.”

Tickets for the individual events are available this Thursday 17th of February via the BBC Website.
