Swn Festival runs from 18-21 October in Cardiff, and is among the biggest city music festivals in the UK. Swn promotes and celebrates new music coming in and out of Wales. It means ‘Sound’ and is pronounced ‘soon’. Topman Ctrl's Resident Controller Huw Stephens helped found the Festival in 2007 and has curated two mixtapes for us to launch this year's event. This is the first, and celebrates many of the more electronic and hip-hop acts featuring at this year's festival. The second, How Swn Is Now? is also available to listen to, and focuses on the guitar and indie bands to be heard over the weekend.
