Cardiff Music Awards

Your city. your music. your awards.

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 third Cardiff Music Awards will take place on 29th March 2018 at Tramshed Cardiff. More details coming soon…

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.

Now for its second year, the project will expand its horizons with more categories, a better nomination process and an awards ceremony that aims to be a significant event in the local music calendar.
