Alex Dingley Band tour dates
Coming out of north Wales, Beard Of Wolves aren’t for the faint-hearted as they present an eclectic and ferocious fusion of rock, garage and drum and bass. If that doesn’t sound enough for you, then their ruthless mix of filthy basslines and pounding drums are taken to another dimension with spooky synths and haunting, echoey vocals.
Think noisy garage-rock with a nu-rave twist - Swn Festival 2012

A rising star poised to join the ranks of household female pop names like Ellie Goulding with her sassy beat-driven songs.
'Embraced by the indie world and glossy enough for Radio 1, Howl is the most exciting UK pop prospect since Lily Allen skipped through LDN in a pair of Nike Airs and a prom dress'
Chlöe Howl tour dates
Climbing Trees are a five-piece multi-instrumental multi-vocal ensemble formed in the deepest, darkest valleys of South Wales in the Summer of 2011.
This band subtley builds from a simple acoustic feel and transforms into an anthemic journey to musical bliss in Harmony heaven.
Named band of the week by Bethan Elfryn on her Sunday BBC Radio show.
Climbing Trees tour dates
LA contemporary hiphop trio using distortion of audio tracks, static and electronic glitches to create a colourful bed of sound.
Clipping tour dates
Estrons are an Alternative Rock band based in Cardiff.
Fronted by Canadian-Swede Taliesyn Kallström, they bring punchy melodic songs, combined with powerful vocals, loud guitars and busy beats that vary with the drummer's rum intake.
Estrons tour dates
Golden Fableare Tim McIver and Rebecca Palin who were the driving force behind Tim And Sam's Tim And The Sam Band With Tim And Sam. Quirky beats and percussion introduce multi-layered synths, acoustic guitars and Rebecca's choral vocal style, which bubbles up to a crescendo of electric guitars and duetting vocals. This is lo-fi, folk-tinged pop that picks you up and takes you to another place.
Golden Fable tour dates
Greta Isaac has a sound reminiscent of Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell, with softly strummed acoustic guitar and a pure, earnest voice.

Expect euphoric harmonies and profound sentiments, without a trace of heartache, pain or sorrow anywhere in sight.

From Cardiff, a spiky, snotty mess of Clash/Jam noise with a pitch-perfect Strummer sneer, a ragged cut-and-shut between the garage rock ramalama of the Von Bondies and snotty curled-lip punk of early Buzzcocks.
