Cardiff Music History: City of Sound

26 October – 23 November 2022

CARDIFF MUSIC HISTORY: CITY OF SOUND is a free exhibition celebrating Cardiff’s music scene.

Cardiff Music History has created a physical and digital archive which captures the stories and the history of music from the capital of Wales. This exhibition is a snapshot of items from the archive; featuring posters, flyers, tickets, records and photography which are brought to life by interviews with people from Cardiff’s music scene. 

Cardiff Music History: City of Sound is about the gigs we love and remember, the DJs we danced to, the venues we miss, the nightclubs, the subcultures and how music has influenced us and our city.

Cardiff Music History is an archive built by the support of people, all the items have been donated by individuals or sourced with funds from Patreon supporters. 

There are audio elements of the exhibition which are accessed using a QR code. In order to fully experience the exhibition we recommend you bring headphones and a mobile device.

Cardiff Music History: City of Sound is a free exhibition in the foyer which will be open all festival and for 4 weeks after. Find out more about our free programme.
