The Definitive Alternative Christmas Playlist

Whether you peaked too soon with your personal Christmas playlist or roll your eyes at everybody else’s festive favourites, Wales Arts Review knows that sometimes the classic holiday tunes just don’t quite hit the spot when you’re looking to make merry. But with just one more sleep to go, and that special hint of magic in the air, now is the perfect time to turn up the volume and wind down with some alternative Christmas tunes curated by Wales Arts Review editors and contributors.


Wales Arts Review works to bring our readers the best critical writing from Wales, and the best critical writing about Wales. It is a place where passionate and informed arts critics, from Wales and beyond, can find expression. Our writers are neither drum-beaters nor axe-grinders but simply knowledgeable and dedicated people who care deeply about culture and society.

Founded in March 2012, Wales Arts Review is a media platform where a new generation of critics and arts lovers can meet to engage in a robust and inclusive discussion about books, theatre, film, music, the visual arts, politics, and the media.
