About The Event

award-winning, female-fronted art-rock four-piece from Cardiff, Wales. Supported by the esteemed Bubblewrap Collective (Georgia Ruth, Boy Azooga, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, Sweet Baboo), they've already released two critically acclaimed albums, 'Interior Design' and 'Inspirational Talks,' both Welsh Music Prize nominees and variously described as ‘Innovative, forward thinking pop music’ (Earthly Pleasures), ‘strange and beautiful music’ (Electronic Sound) and a

'Multi-dimensional sound that traipses across hitherto unexplored regions of sound' (Clash)’. They've earned a reputation for their innovative and multi-dimensional sound that pushes boundaries and explores uncharted territories.

Their mesmerising live performances have delighted audiences across the globe, gracing renowned festivals like Green Man, Glastonbury, Sŵn, Suns and Pop Montreal. Sharing the stage with acclaimed artists like Melin Melyn, Another Sky, Wooze, Songhoy Blues and Tricot, they leave a lasting impact on fans and fellow musicians alike.

Pseudo Cool

'Dirty Pop' straight from Maesteg in the South Wales Valleys. As featured on Adam Walton, Lisa Gwilym shows on BBC Wales, BBC 6 MUSIC, and KEXP. Pseudo Cool's witty, punchy and raw songs critically observe society and advocate for equality, drawing inspiration from The Primitives, Voice of the Beehive and Lily Allen.

Francis Rees

“The newly reformed Welsh language experimental ambient Euro-pop group Francis Rees are about to make their mark on the Welsh music scene with their lush synth production paired with hypnotic harmonies.

Consisting of Beth Pugh (vocalist, production), and new members Bethan Ruth (vocalist, bass, production) and Ceirios [SURNAME] (guitar, production), Francis Rees is a project encapsulating the dreamy and liminal states of synth layered pop music. With songs entirely written, arranged and produced by the members themselves, it presents a refreshed perspective on the future of Welsh pop which has been insistently been dominated by indie rock. Alongside a new wave of experimental Welsh music artists, their music stands for an undefinable movement, providing accessibility to genres previously unheard within the scene.
