The Cardiff Big Weekend has taken place annually since 1994 as part of the Cardiff Festival organised by Cardiff Council. Billed as the UK’s biggest free outdoor music festival, it offers three days of quality live music and entertainment. Alongside the live music stage runs the UK’s largest travelling funfair around Cardiff's Civic Centre. Each night comes to a close with a firework finale. There is always an eclectic line of up and coming artists, world music and established artists, and traditionally the Friday night has always had a strong presence of Welsh bands.

Line up also included Chesney Hawkes, Hazel O’Connor, The Christians and Modern Romance.
The Cardiff Big Weekend, which is usually held the second weekend in August as part of Cardiff Festival, was "rested" in 2012 because Olympic football took place at the Millennium Stadium (in Cardiff) on August 9 and 10.
