Read more about the Arts Council funding announcement here, and in our recent interviews with Joyzine and  London in Stereo.

Independent Venue Week celebrates the spirit of independence and the culture of live music and is “a 7-day celebration of music venues around the country and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.

These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience. They give fans somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages. They also provide those wanting a career in music, off the stage, the chance to learn their craft up close in a small venue.”

Tickets for all shows also available from our website here.
