WHETHER you’re into indie, rock, punk, funk, folk, electronica, hip hop or anything else, there’s incredible music being made in the Welsh language for you to discover- according to Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens as he urges people across North Wales to find their favourite new sound on the third Welsh Language Music Day, on Friday, February 9.

The day celebrates all forms of Welsh language music and a series of live, free music events aimed at gig goers, parents and children, young people, students and businesses will be happening all across the country organised by promoters including S?n, BBC Horizons, Forté Project and Clwb Ifor Bach.

The musicians will head a panel to discuss their experiences, successes and the stumbling blocks of getting into the music industry.

A free gig is aimed at students in Bangor is being organised by NME award-winning festival S?n with the line-up soon to be announced.

Around 400 school children from across North Wales will hit the dancefloor at Venue Cymru in Llandudno, for Starter Iaith’s DMC disco with giant characters Seren and Sbarc.

In Pwllheli, award-winning Welsh folk singer Gwilym Bowen Rhys, who has performed at events such as the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, will play an intimate set at Whitehall.

If you want to listen on a smartphone- or you’re a business that would like to play more Welsh language music to its staff or customers - there’s six playlists curated by DJ Gareth Potter including Acoustic, Electronica, Campfire Sing Song, Chill Out, Workout and Legends to play on Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer, easily available by scanning a Shazam code with a phone camera.

BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, ambassador for the day, said: “Whatever you're into, Dydd Miwsig Cymru is a day to help you discover music you'll love. If you've never heard or not heard much Welsh language music, it might not be what you think it is. And you don’t need to understand any Welsh to get into it. There's incredible music of almost every genre, all being made in the Welsh language. Try something and you might just find your favourite new sound.”

The day is a part of the long-term vision to see a million people speaking and using Welsh by 2050.
