This year's Vale of Glamorgan Festival runs from 9 - 16 May 2018 with concerts in the Vale of Glamorgan, including St David's Hall and Hoddinnot in Cardiff, to Penarth Pier Pavilion and Ewenny Priory. The focus this year is on the music of the Danish composer Bent Sørensen, with his works being spread across the festival in six concerts. The festival opens with Alexandre Bosch conducting the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in programme which includes Bent Sorensen's Trumpet Concerto and music by Thierry Escaich and Qigang Chen. Qigang Chen is a Chinese composer who trained with Messiaen, and his Jiang Tcheng Tse (For the Sake of Art) is receiving its European premiere, the work having been co-commissioned by the festival.

Also at the festival there is solo cello music from Alice Neary, music for flute and piano from Jose Zalba Smith & Jan Willem Nelleke, solo piano music from Ivan Illic, music for flute and piano from Matthew Jones and Annable Thwaite, plus two concerts from the Danish group Ensemble MidVest. Composers featured in the festival include David Roche, John Metcalf, Helen Woods and many more.
