Gigs & Live Music in Bristol
My aim is to get all of Bristol's quality live music listed on one page. And while it sounds like a simple task, creating a what's on guide for all Bristol's gigs is pretty tough! One of the great things about live music in Bristol is it can be found where you least expect it.
Making a gig guide for Bristol's regular music venues would be easy. Making a gig guide for ALL of Bristol's gigs is a whole different story... A punk band on Turbo Island? An all girl accappella group playing to a crammed upstairs at the Miners Arms? Opera in a freshly closed-down Wetherspoons? All of these music events have happened - recently. Innovative and unusual gigs must be happening all the time, but all too often they are discovered well after the event actually occurred.
The whats on listings to the left reflect all the Bristol gigs on Headfirst. On our homepage keep an eye on the pink events, (green = gigs, blue = clubnights, pink = other), these are unusual or special events including street festivals, ourdoor gigs and bands in Bristol's parks or the harbourside.
Whenever my dad comes to Bristol, he's always shocked that there's so much great music that's free. I've made a special category on Headfirst for free gigs in Bristol, while there's always a margin for error I'm keen for it to be the most reliable resource for free live music in Bristol.
