Last updated on 11th January 2019

It’s your first week at university in Cardiff and you’re looking to bond with your new friends. That’s no problem at all – Wales’ capital city promises a ton of live concerts for you to share some early experiences this Freshers’ Week, as well as excellent club nights.

Cardiff’s music scene is famous across the UK and its offerings this Freshers’ Week don’t disappoint. Whether you’re into the classic thrash metal of Volvoid, Skinny Palembe’s psychedelic soul or the virtuosic acoustic guitar of Luca Stricagnoli, music fans will have plenty to sink their teeth into. Those of a poppier disposition could even catch US pop sensation Jason Deruolo’s show at the Motorpoint Arena at 25th September.

As for clubs, TigerTiger is one of Cardiff’s best known clubs and is bound to appeal to all of the city’s new students with its 99p drinks, while late-night club Pulse is famous for its legendary foam parties. Meanwhile, if you don’t feel like venturing far off campus, the Cardiff University Students’ Union will be hosting a club night every day of the week. Can’t ask for more than that, can you?
