Bristol unlike many other UK cities does not currently have a large arena space for music lovers to catch upcoming bands or their favourite acts, however this has not hindered the music scene as it has allowed independent music venues to thrive.

The Fleece

With a live music venue such as ‘The Fleece’ good music doesn’t have a day off as they provide live music every night of the week. Since its opening in the 80s it has seen the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Oasis and Radiohead play to Bristolians. A fun fact about the venue is that it used to play host to a sheep trading market in the 1800s!

The Louisiana

For a cosy music experience head to ‘The Louisiana’ where live bands play nightly in a room above the pub. It has become a firm favourite with artists as well as gig goers and previous bands such as; Florence and The Machine, The Scissor Sisters and The National have all rocked out in this intimate venue. A music venue with a twist is a former cargo ship called ‘Thekla’ that is moored at the docks. The stage has an endlessly long list of well-known artists who have stepped on board including Sia, Metronomy, Babyshambles and Electric Six, proving this is a live music venue to welcome all kinds of genres.
