Bristol's Pop Scene

80s pop, 90s pop, Bristol has all kinds of pop. Go down the Harbourside on any night of the week and the streets are packed with queuing punters going out to hear the latest tracks and pop classics from days gone by. Bristol's thriving club scene means you can go out and hear almost any music. Another key area is the Clifton Triangle (especially for students) where cheap nights and drink deals at clubs like Po Na Na and Mbargo's are all the rage.

On the live circuit, you can experience plenty of pop music in Bristol. Like any major city, larger concert venues cater towards and music and, along with Cardiff, Bristol is one of the key cities in the West (and South-West) for any international touring act to be playing. Larger venues like the O2 Academy and Colston Hall are great places to see groups of all kind.

Our recent pop recommendations

Fragile, breathy saxophone playing is both immediately captivating and extraordinary. DePlume pairs delicate solo work, warm ensemble and spoken word in turmoil. On track to sell out well in advance. Alabaster De Plume + DJ Dad at Jam Jar.

WHAT OUR EDITORS SAY

18+ event. TUYS is a four-piece band established in Luxembourg and now based in Berlin, creating driving indie rock and emotive psych pop music with chiming guitars, synths, and wide-ranging vocals in three-part harmony. The band also heavily focuses on visual art and navigates on the threshold between fiction and reality with a satirical edge.
The critically acclaimed Anatolian rock and Turkish Psychedelic Folk band Altin Gün have built a strong reputation for fusing past and present to make brilliantly catchy, upbeat pop music, as seen with their Grammy-nominated second album, Gece.
THE LONELY TOURIST: Bathos fuelled pop gems from Bristol based Glaswegian with guitar. Plays 'Beard Pop' or Pub-Step 'Classic underdog pop music' - Steve Lamacq 6 Music https://www.facebook.com/lonelytouristmusic http://www.lonelytourist.bandcamp.com/
