Cardiff Music City Festival Presents Llais, Cardiff’s annual international arts festival inspired by the instrument that connects us all – the voice.

With a mixture of free and ticketed events, Llais presents a programme of adventurous live music, thought-provoking performance and playful experiences for everyone to explore.

Not confined by genre or artform, Llais celebrates internationally acclaimed artists through to the creativity on our doorstep, transforming Wales Millennium Centre into a festival site like no other. 

Fittingly for a venue situated on the edge of a harbour that has for centuries rung with voices from across the world - the richly diverse and global line-up assembled for this year's festival celebrates the incredible versatility of the human voice and its power to move and heal.

The perfect expression of the inscription cut so boldly into the copper facade of the Wales Millennium Centre that speaks of an industrial past, a poetic soul and a shining future, Llais says so much about who we are and who we could be.

With the audience sing-alongs, which have become a much-loved feature of the festival, and those thrilling moments of planned and serendipitous communion between artists - often meeting for the first time - it is becoming clear that Llais is as much about congregation and connection as it is about the voice.

This year we’re thrilled to be part of Cardiff Music City Festival - together we are redrawing what a festival can bring to audiences across three inspiring weeks of innovative and joyful experiences that pay homage to our vast musical landscape’
