Bristol has a vibrant music scene beating behind the doors of its many characterful venues. From musical legends in revered concert halls, to 25-piece Samba bands strumming under Banksy-covered walls, from indie hangouts to gigs afloat in old German boats, Bristol’s music venues cater for all tastes. 

Colston Hall - a gleaming geometric jewel in Bristol’s music scene, plays host to big names in pop, rock, world and classical music, musical legends, stand-up comedy, light entertainment as well as local orchestras, schools and choirs. The city is also home to one of the country’s finest concert halls, decommissioned church, St George’s. 

The Bristol Proms return to the Bristol Old Vic, for a rapturous week of classical music and cultural activities in an intimate setting. If big concerts are more your thing, spend the summer solstice at the Bristol Summer Series concerts playing over three days - past acts include George Ezra, Kaiser Chiefs and Seasick Steve.

Motion Bristol has welcomed some of the world’s leading DJs and artists and is named as 24th best nightclub on Planet Earth. The Old Duke, is famous for its traditional live jazz played every night of the week and that’s just a sprinkling of what’s on offer.
