Cardiff Music City

The Sound Diplomacy report into Cardiff’s music sector has been published.

The report makes 12 strategic recommendations which if fully incorporated into Cardiff’s Music Strategy could see:

  • The creation of a major international signature event/festival and artist showcase;
  • The establishment of a Music Board for the city to represent and champion Cardiff as the UK’s first Music City;
  • A masterplan for Castle Quarter which highlights its unique position within Cardiff’s music scene;
  • The renovation and refurbishment of St David’s Hall to create a revitalised National Concert Hall of Wales;
  • The revision of existing licencing policies and introduction of Musician Loading zones at city centre venues;
  • The creation of a Cardiff Music City tourism marketing strategy;

The Sound Diplomacy Music City report, took a year to compile and saw the world-leading consultancy - which helps cities deliver economic growth, investment and cultural development through music - speak with hundreds of people working across Cardiff’s music industry.
