Idles are a part of the event which will be held between April 1st-3rd.

The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival has unveiled the line-up for its return in April 2022, with station favourites Idles leading the way alongside Little Simz, Father John Misty, Self Esteem, Johnny Marr and many more.

“The most exciting element about the 6 Music Festival is the coming together, in a physical space, of our beloved 6 Music listeners and the staff at the station, with artists we love. Lockdowns have kept us apart since 2020, so this year’s gigs in Cardiff are going to feel super-charged,” DJ Mary Anne Hobbs says.

“It’s great news that the 6 Music Festival is coming to Cardiff,” Huw Stephens adds. “We love our live music here; gigs and club nights are a massive part of what makes Cardiff special, and live music is in our blood.”

“We also love BBC Radio 6 Music and to have this incredible festival happening here at this important time in live music venues’ recovery, is really exciting.”

The festival will spread its wings across multiple venues in Wales’ capital city, including St David’s Hall, The Great Hall and Tramshed.
