“[Ed Townend, founder and director of Cardiff Music Awards] said the release of the shortlist for the awards this month shows the quality of the music scene here.
“All these names that we put on the nomination list are fantastic examples of how Cardiff’s music scene is so strong. Not just here, but around the UK and the world.
“The only way we’re going to be able to have these acts continues is to have venues like these are who willing to put acts people have never heard of on their stages. We have Hub and Swn which are primarily based on Womanby Street and to lose those would be a death knell for the music scene in Cardiff.”
