CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK
Independent Venue Week (IVW) is the UK’s annual 7-day celebration of independent music & arts venues and the people that own, run and work in them.
During the week, independent venues come together with artists, promoters, agents, record labels and media to create a unique series of special live events across the U.K. to highlight on the work these venues do year-round. By doing so, local communities come together and celebrate these special places with thousands of artists playing hundreds of shows in villages, towns and cities all around the UK.
These venues, all local businesses, are the backbone of the live music scene and Independent Venue Week recognises all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.
As part of Independent Venues Week in Cardiff, we have 15 shows running from 28 January to 5 February across half a dozen of our most popular live music hotspots, check them out below…

A CITY OF MUSIC
Cardiff is the first city in the UK to incorporate music urbanism into a city’s development approach, from integrating music infrastructure into our city regeneration plans, to promoting and creating music opportunities for social wellbeing, to encouraging talent development, performance, production and music tourism.
