Archive: National Eisteddfod in Cardiff in 2008
The 2018 National Eisteddfod could be held in Cardiff Bay without the traditional Maes (field).
If the plan goes ahead it is understood that the cultural festival will not have a perimeter fence or charge an entrance fee, BBC Wales has learned.
Organisers are hoping to use buildings such as Wales Millennium Centre, rather than temporary pavilions and marquees, to host the competitions and events.
The Eisteddfod travels to a different location in Wales every summer.
Here is a compilation of the Eisteddfod when it last came to Cardiff in 2008 - when it was held in Pontcanna Fields.
