Charlotte Church will curate an evening, titlted Utopia, which will feature ionnalee, Fatoumata Diawara, Le Gateau Chocolat and Talia Randall. She commented on her coming performance at the Festival of Voice:

"My perfect world has voices from the most diverse areas of world music, grime, cabaret, electronica, all snuggled alongside each other as comfortable bed fellows. I want to explore concepts of utopia and dystopia with the audience, whilst having unhealthy amounts of fun. But in my utopia, there's always a rave at the end of the night. Just a very vocal rave…! It's also great to be involved in Festival of Voice again this year - the festival offers artists and audiences new opportunities to explore, discover and find their own powerful voice - and all in Cardiff."

Other newly confirmed performances will come from:- Free Wize Men, Eadyth, Asha Jane, Wonky Tree, DJ Jaffa, Epilog, Children Of Zeus, Rekyjavikurdaetur, Chester P, NonameDisciple, Ty, and AAA Badboy.
