Friday February 8th 2019- that’s the date for the diaries of music fans from Wales and the world for the fourth annual Welsh Language Music Day- Dydd Miwsig Cymru.
This February saw Hollywood actor Rhys Ifans and Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens urge fans of all genres to discover the incredible music being made in the Welsh language, while thousands of people of all ages experienced live Welsh music at events across the country and as far afield as Budapest and Brooklyn. The campaign reached more than 74 million and musicians reported noticeable spikes in listening figures on streaming services like Spotify.
With the date set for 2019, Huw is calling on individuals and organisations across Wales and the world to take part by staging their own gig, listening party or by playing Welsh language music in their business.
