40 more bands for the SWN Festival bill

Line ups that are picked by The Blackout and Kids In Glass Houses are confirmed

With exactly one calendar month to go until the start of SWN Festival 2010 organisers have unveiled over 40 more bands who will be playing this year's event.
They include well known names, such as Tom Gray from Gomez, who'll be playing only his third ever solo set, Radio 1 Xtra DJ Ras Kwame, who'll be hosting a night of UK and homegrown hip-hop and breaks, DJ Raffertie who'll join the excellent Moshi Moshi label DJs for a night of action at Buffalo Bar and Domino Label's awesome Clinic who'll play the opening evening of the festival.

Ubercool US outfit Beach Fossils will play their first ever UK show at SWN Festival 2010. Becoming Real, Chad Valley, Dam Mantle and Still Corners are some of many bands making their debut in Wales, and there's many amazing acts from Wales, including Cate Le Bon, Henrys Funeral Shoe, Derwyddon Dr Gonzo and Racehorses.
There will be more rock bands at SWN Festival 2010 and with them some shows open to those aged 14+. Two top favourite bands who've emerged from South Wales - The Blackout and Kids In Glass Houses - have curated a day of shows during the Saturday of SWN Festival, with bands Reaper In Sicily, The Computers, The Guns, Exit International, Black Spiders and Throats all playing their stages. Gavin Butler from The Blackout will open the afternoon with a solo set, before Kids In Glass Houses wrap up the live shows with a special, very, very intimate acoustic set... Aled from Kids In Glass Houses will then DJ with Sean aka Dirty Love from The Blackout at a 14-18 yr old DJ event taking place at Millennium Music Hall 3.

Stroller wristbands will get you free priority access to all the shows in the Stroller Area. The stroller area covers the stages at Dempseys, Clwb Ifor Bach (upstairs and downstairs), Y Fuwch Goch, The Model Inn (upstairs and downstairs), Undertone, Cardiff Arts Institute, Buffalo Bar and Chapter Arts Centre (there’s several stages here). As some of the venues are a little further out, or the bands are much bigger, organisers have ticketed them as you would a normal show. This way you’re guaranteed entry (subject to the usual conditions).
