- Best Fit Recordings artist FAYE confirmed to appear at Sŵn 2012

Returning for its sixth year, Sŵn Festival has announced the first eighty acts confirmed to appear at the four day event held throughout Cardiff between October 18-21. Hosted across various venues in and around the city centre, the festival is curated by long-time Welsh music champion and concert promoter John Rostron and Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, with the help of several hand-picked promoters, labels and music publications.
