Have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience the thrill of a music festival inside one of Cardiff’s most historical landmarks? Well, now you can, thanks to Depot in the Castle – a live music event featuring various musical artists, food vendors and an unbelievable atmosphere, all taking place inside Cardiff’s 11th-century castle. 

With over 2000 years of history, Cardiff Castle is an unforgettable venue for a music festival. Immerse yourself in Cardiff’s rich history as you sit back, relax and enjoy an abundance of musical talent. 

Cardiff is a vibrant and lively city, with an established theatre and film scene, but now it is time to also appreciate its incredible music scene. The popularity of other art forms can often overshadow the city’s musical history, but it’s important to remember the range of music on offer in Cardiff is absolutely huge and ever-growing. Since the 1990s, the Welsh capital has been dominated by indie rock and alternative folk music. It is very special to see Cardiff embrace the city’s love of music, broadening its horizons and bringing it back into the mainstream of the city streets. 

Cardiff Castle is a prominent community hub and the first thing you think of when you picture our city. It is the very centre of Cardiff and it has been host to a plethora of prestigious artists. The list ranges from Nile Rodgers, Clean Bandit, Tom Odell, and Craig David to captivating acts such as Madness, a-Ha, The Chicks, Blondie, Sting, Westlife, Hozier, Lumineers, Bastille, and the one and only Sir Tim Jones.
