LLAIS is Cardiff’s international arts festival, bringing artists and audiences together for incredible live music, thought-provoking performance and inspirational talks.

With a range of ticketed performances and free public performances, everyone can join in this celebration of the voice and everything it can do.

"LLAIS is much more than a music festival; it’s an exploration of what the voice can do and how important it is to have one."
