KLUST

Klust is an independent music website that champions new artists from all across Wales. A pop artist or an experimentalist, Klust promotes, supports and celebrates the growing vibrancy within the Welsh music scene in the form of comprehensive reviews and exclusive publications. Klust aims to unite like-minded people to excite, experience and discover new Welsh music in an inclusive and progressive space. Since its launch in 2022, Klust has been selected as one of Youth Music's NextGen Fund awardee as well as one of three of Beacons' 'Future Disruptors'.

LARYNX ENTERTAINMENT

Larynx Entertainment is a media platform dedicated to the promotion and support of MOBO artists in Wales. Through blogging releases, curating live events and creating original content we aim to spotlight what is happening across Wales in the world of rap, RNB, AfroBeats and more.

HIGH GRADE GROOVES

High Grade Grooves is an event organisers and record label based in North Wales. 

It was established back in 2013, when fresh out of university Endaf decided he would like to throw parties with his fellow DJ friends. 

Fast forward 10 years, we have now established ourselves on the Welsh music scene holding events across the country as well as being the pioneers in releasing Welsh language electronic music. 

We are also very actively involved in project/charity work offering opportunities to young creatives.

TŶ CERDD

Tŷ Cerdd is here:

 

  • to bring the music of Wales to audiences across our nation, and to the rest of the world.​

  • to protect the legacy of Welsh music of the past, to nurture Welsh music of the present, and drive the development of new composition.​

  • to support professionals and non-professionals, performers and audiences, to perform, compose and experience Welsh music.

 

We work with a growing network of societies and performing groups across Wales, offering them artistic expertise and promotional support, and helping them to connect with composers and audiences.

 

We provide direct support for composers, and collaborate with Wales's professional music organisations, with the help of our in-house recording studio, record label (Tŷ Cerdd Records) and publishing imprint.

 

We fund a range of work in communities and commissions by Welsh composers, with Lottery funds that we distribute for Arts Council of Wales.

RADAR MAGAZINE

In 2021 we launched the first print issue of Radar Mag, providing a platform to tell the stories of Welsh music, people and places that make our country unique.

 

Since then we've maintained a focus on those who strive to succeed independently, be it as musicians, artists or businesses, and those who do so staying true to their Welsh roots.

 

In both print issues to date, and our On The Radar online feature, we'd like to think that there is something for everyone. Across our publications you can expect to find poetry, short stories, photography and wide ranging articles and interviews with the latest and greatest of Cardiff based musicians and beyond.

 

Ahead of ISSUE 03, our aim remains the same; to deliver fun, varied and engaging content for everyone. In doing so we're determined to help keep print media alive and to keep what we do truly local to you.

ANTHEM

Anthem. Music Fund Wales: a Wales in which music can empower every young life. Anthem is here to support young people in Wales to make, learn and celebrate music, and to experience the life-changing benefits that brings. We support them, and those who work with them through funding, partnerships and initiatives.

TAFWYL

Tafwyl is an annual festival celebrating the Welsh language, arts and culture, established in 2006 by the charity Menter Caerdydd.

The festival is now established as not just one of the biggest festivals in Cardiff but also in Wales.  In 2022, Tafwyl returned to Cardiff Castle after the lockdown period with over 31,000 visitors attending, and in 2023, Tafwyl moved to the extensive site at Bute Park and attracted its largest number of visitors ever.

Tafwyl came out on top at the Cardiff Music Awards, taking the title 'Best Cardiff Festival' in 2018 and 2019, and won the 'Best Event' award at the 'Cardiff Life' Awards in 2021. Menter Caerdydd enjoyed success in the 'Cardiff Life' Awards 2022, winning the 'Sefydliad Iaith Gymraeg' award and the 'Platinum' award - which is the main annual award.

Tafwyl will be held on Saturday and Sunday the 13th and 14th of July 2024, with a series of fringe events in the week leading up to the Festival. This year for the first time, there will be a special and exclusive event on Friday the 12th of July in the Big Top Tent, "Tafiliwn".

We are keen to keep entry to Tafwyl free and have managed to do this over the years thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and partners. With costs continuing to rise, we need your help more than ever.

The festival is open to everyone – whatever their native language. It is also a great event for new Welsh speakers and people who want to get their first taste of the Welsh language and culture. Tafwyl is a wonderful Welsh language celebration and showcases our culture at its very best!

GIG BUDDIES

Gig Buddies Cymru is a befriending scheme that matches adults with a learning disability (and autistic adults) with a volunteer who shares the same interests, so they can go to gigs and social activities together.

LŴP DARLUN

Started in 2014 and is a multi-award winning Television production company based in Caernarfon in North West Wales. We’ve built a reputation for innovative TV formats that put people at the heart of our programmes. We bring some good old Welsh passion and creativity to every project, whether it’s a single documentary or a factual entertainment format.
