Cardiff Music Awards 2018 Date Confirmed

Cardiff’s biggest night in music has been announced as 29 March 2018.


Nominations will open at 12pm on the 8th of November and close on the 31st of January, which gives you almost two whole months to get your nominations in.

The Cardiff Music Awards recognises the achievements, success and talents of organisations and individuals who have helped enhance Cardiff’s unique and diverse music scene.

The awards will take place once again at Tramshed Cardiff on Thursday 29th March 2018. Please keep the date clear in your diaries. We’re especially lucky, as it’s a bank holiday the day after, no excuses to miss it this time around!

A panel of independent judges (tbc) from the local Cardiff area will decide who ultimately wins each award. The scoring system after the nominations will combine both the judges’ critique and votes from the public. The nominations will be made by the public. There will be 20 awards such as; Best Group, Best Venue, Best Breakthrough Act, Best Club Night and Outstanding Contribution to name just a few.

Last year’s event featured performances from Astroid Boys, Bodhi, CHROMA, Ransom, and Johnny Cage & The Voodoogroove and 2018’s line up promises to be bursting with more talent from the Welsh capital. Last year’s event was jam packed with over 400 talented individuals from the local music scene, local businesses and from further afield – a true showcase of how loyal and supportive the Cardiff music scene is and the night really marked its growing place in the UK and the world.
