Festival of Voice is our very own biennial international arts festival that takes places in Cardiff and celebrates the voice in all its forms.

The 10-day Festival began in 2016 and featured over 100 performances across the city, immersing Cardiff in the incredible talents of singers and performers from around the world.

Artists such as John Cale, Van Morrison, Bryn Terfyl and Laura Mvula all helped make Festival of Voice a resounding success and introduced the Centre to a whole new audience.

Festival of Voice 2018 celebrated the spirit of discovery and extended its reach to the rest of city with events taking place in venues across the city - from the Sherman Theatre to the Hays.

It also saw the Centre transforming it's own spaces with the Donald Gordon Theatre stage being reversed for club nights featuring Ibibio Sound Machine and Charlotte Church's event, Utopia.

The festival kicked off with a large-scale collaboration - in celebration of a hundred years of votes for women - which saw thousands joining processions through the streets of Cardiff.

Renowned artists from around the world were a huge part of the festival with the likes of Laura Veirs, Tank and the Bangas, Patti Smith, Elvis Costello and Passenger taking to the stage with shows spanning a variety of art forms.

Embracing the idea of a city-wide festival, an international street food zone and a 360 cinema dome were created at the rear of the building while the Glanfa became the main festival hub with games, performances and art installations creating plenty of interest and atmosphere.

Each year the festival continues to evolve and is driven by what inspires us and excites our audiences. 2020 promises to be even better so keep an eye out for that and book your tickets early.
