Lady Leshurr, the MOBO award-winning rapper, is the main stage headliner, who bringing her explosive live show to Cardiff for the first time in five years.  Lady Leshurr was awarded the British Empire Medal by the Queen in 2020 after she donated all the proceeds for her “Quarantine Speech” to the NHS. 

Lady Leshurr will be supported by Sage Todz, whose “O Hyd” became the unofficial anthem of the Welsh football team in Qatar, alongside Minas, who will be performing tracks from his outstanding new album “All My Love Has Failed Me”.

Completing the mainstage line up are Cardiff punk titans Terrapins, hard-hitting hip hop duo DiffJaxx and the explosive trio Shlug

Organised by University of South Wales students, the four stages feature over forty artists and bands.

Festival goers can expect an eclectic music mix, DJs, street food, live theatre, workshops, a tattoo parlour and an upcycled fashion market. 

The festival weekend

The festival weekend kicks off on Friday 17 February with the Immersed! 5th Birthday Awards Event at the Cardiff Atrium in collaboration with Libertino Records.   The event will feature live performances from participants of Skills Competition Wales, and a music industry careers fair. 

After the main event at the Tramshed on Saturday, the festival concludes on Sunday 19 February with Immersed TV, an online live broadcast featuring highlights from the main stage, exclusive artist interviews and “5 Years”, an Immersed! legacy documentary. 

Organisers have partnered with climate change charity Music Declares Emergency to highlight the effects of climate breakdown and help promote change towards a greener and more sustainable future. 

Each of the stages will embody one of the four elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water linking to the festival’s theme of climate change. USW Drama students will be cast as “Wizards”, alongside a wide range of absorbing characters that will engage with audiences and encourage them to participate in the festival’s narrative.

Since the festival was founded four years ago, it continues to collaborate with a wide array of musicians, promoters, labels and organisations across South Wales to support its vibrant music scene.
