At this years Cardiff Music Awards we have two ground breaking all female bands headlining the awards ceremony. We celebrate and take pride in knowing everyone is being supported in the local music scene, while also giving bands a chance to be heard by people who wouldn’t normally watch/listen to them.
At this year’s Cardiff Music Awards we have Panic Shack playing in the awards ceremony, a four-piece female band who have been nominated for the ‘Best Breakthrough Act’. Their music is utterly empowering and their stage presence is captivating. They’ve received great success with their single launch for ‘Who’s Got My Lighter?’ with a sell out show at Clwb ifor Bach.

We’re also super pleased to have Adwaith performing at the awards, a three piece experimental post punk band from Carmarthenshire. They couldn’t be doing any better for themselves, winning the ‘Welsh Music Prize’ award in 2019 for their album ‘Melyn’ and growing in popularity over night. They’re definitely becoming the future of Welsh music! 2020 is looking busy for Adwaith with their recent performance at ‘UU.SOUND’ in Russia, what a way to kick off the year!
