Dydd Miwsig Cymru
Welsh Language Music Day

4 February 2022 is Welsh Language Music Day

Welsh Language Music Day celebrates all forms of Welsh Language music. 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.

But you don’t have to wait until Welsh Language Music Day to share your love for Welsh language music or to find your favourite new tune, just follow @Miwsig or search #Miwsig.

Share your Miwsig Memories!

This Dydd Miwsig Cymru, we’ll be paying tribute to the independent music venues – often found at the heart of Welsh communities – that have been home to decades of Welsh language gigs and ‘miwsig memories’.

To celebrate the day, we’re asking music fans to share their unforgettable memories from Welsh language music gigs at venues new and old: meeting a partner, making a long-lasting friend, or a gig as a language-learning catalyst.

Share your memory or favourite moment on social media using #MiwsigMemories.

Don’t speak Welsh or thinking of learning Welsh? Miwsig is for everyone. Get involved...
