About Us

Who we are

The Cardiff Music Awards is a project designed to promote, recognise and celebrate music in the Welsh capital. Its aim is to reinforce how healthy the scene is by getting hundreds, if not thousands, of people involved in one major honour roll for Cardiff music.

The fourth Cardiff Music Awards will take place on 29th March 2019 at Tramshed Cardiff.

Launching in 2015, the first Cardiff Music Awards was a grassroots project with no funding that brought together multiple creators and promoters of music to be awarded their inaugural titles.

In its second year, the project expanded its horizons with more categories, a better nomination process and an awards ceremony that aimed to be a significant event in the local music calendar. Now in its fourth year, the winning a Cardiff Music Award has proven to be a standout moment in the music career for those working in the city.
