The purpose of the board is to champion Cardiff’s music scene locally, nationally and internationally, protect and promote music at grassroots and all levels, providing a platform for increased communication and collaboration across the sector. 

The Cardiff music board will enable experts from various sectors to work together towards shared goals to benefit and develop the music ecology and business in Cardiff, supporting the aspiration of Cardiff being celebrated as a music city.​

We would like to invite applications to join the Cardiff Music Board. The Cardiff Music Board will be made up of 18 members representing a range of skills and expertise, as well as the city’s diverse communities. The Council will manage an open call of expressions of interest for the Cardiff Music Board based on this criteria. The Council will ensure board diversity of representation and gender balance.
