Free gig celebrates Huw Stephens' new show

To celebrate the launch of Huw Stephens' new weekday show on BBC Radio 6 Music, there's a free gig at Clwb Ifor Bach this week (Thursday 11 January).

Headlined by fast-rising psych-rockers CVC, a six-piece musical collective from up the A470 at Church Village, the gig is supported by Cardiff Music Board.

With their Welsh Music Prize-nominated album described by the NME as "a cracking debut album of feelgood, uber-retro gems" and by The Times as "remarkably fully formed," CVC were one of the break-through acts of 2023.

CVC will share the bill with two other Cardiff-based artists, hotly-tipped by Huw Stephens to break through in 2024.

Tickets are free, and only available on the door, so the advice is to arrive early to avoid missing out.

Broadcasting from the BBC Cymru Wales Studios in Central Square, Cardiff, Huw Stephens' new show will be 6 Music's first regular programme broadcast from Wales, as part of the BBC's Across the UK plans to better reflect, represent and serve all audiences.

The show will air on Tuesdays to Fridays (4-7pm) from this week (Tuesday 9 January).

Huw Stephens said: "Wales has a brilliant music scene going on so being based here means I can introduce even more brilliant Welsh artists to a wider audience, plus continue to shine a light on the best new artists from across the UK and beyond. Thank you to the iconic Clwb Ifor Bach for putting on this special gig - there's such a buzz about CVC right now, this might be the last chance to see them in a grassroots venue for a while, plus there are some really exciting new artists lined in support as well."
