Tafwyl— Caerdydd's Welsh-language arts and culture festival— has announced its line up for this year's festival, which marks its fifteenth anniversary.


The festival will begin on 15 May and will be streamed online for the second consecutive year because of the pandemic through the digital AM platform from Castell Caerdydd.


The event will be hosted by presenters Huw Stephens, Seren Jones, and Tara Bethan.


Among the acts performing are Geraint Jarman, Eden, Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Ani Glass, Gwilym, Bwncath, and Eädyth, among others.


There will also be a performance by Breton band, EMEZI, through a partnership between Tafwyl and the Breton festival Gouel Broadel ar Brezhoneg.


'Great opportunity'


“After a quiet year, I’m really looking forward to returning to the castle to play at this year’s festival," performer Ani Glass said. "It will be a great opportunity to say goodbye to a difficult time and celebrate a new beginning for us all.”


Presenter Seren Jones said: “I’m delighted to present Tafwyl for the first time with Huw and Tara this year. It’s a privilege to be part of the team, to broadcast from my home, Cardiff, and to enjoy our culture. After a tough year for everyone, I think Tafwyl is the best way to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter!”
