Sŵn Festival

Sŵn Festival is celebrated annually during the third full week of October. This is a spectacular music festival that unites the hearts of those who cannot imagine life without their favorite tracks. Music is one of the greatest inventions of mankind. And if you are still thinking about visiting the events of the holiday, we advise you to make a positive decision!


The festival was founded by BBC Radio 1. In fact, it was organized by the youngest radio presenter DJ Huw Stephens and promoter John Rostron. People fell in love with the holiday, they immediately supported it! In 2020, for example, there are 241 music-themed events in the UK. The number of people participating during this period is difficult to calculate.

Scientists and historians do not know when music appeared. If we adhere to the theory of Marx and Engels, musical sounds appeared when shouting out – this is how a person organized the work of a group of people performing some kind of coordinated action. Studies of the skulls of ancient monkeys have revealed that the human ancestor had the ability to sing.

The oldest tools found during excavations arose 44 thousand years ago. The bones of kites and swans were used to create. Some unconfirmed facts even say that holes were specially created in the caves, which were responsible for the resonant purity of the sound.
