Exchange

Forward thinking live music venue in Old Market.


Since opening its doors to the public in later summer 2012, Bristol's Exchange has proven itself to be a key player in Bristol's live music music scene. With ticketted events almost every night of the week, Exchange plays host to a wide variety of live bands and styles. That said, the venue's musical programming for bands that sit on the heavier side of the fence (post-rock, math rock, psych) is unrivalled elsewhere in Bristol.

The venue is set over two floors with the larger of the two stages upstairs found upstairs. While club promoters are able to run two concurrent soundsystems, gig promoters and all-dayers use the space to sequence bands and provide a constant programme of music.

Doors for live music events at Exchange are typically 7.30pm, while clubnights vary.

Our recent recommendations for Exchange

Reverant folk blues played on 12 string guitar with the poetic fever of Townes Van Zandt, summoning the same ghosts of mental illness and the mundane country sprawl. Parr isn’t a revivalist - he’s one of the last of the true originals. Charlie Parr at Exchange.

Sell out warning! ATTN art punks!! Snõ​õper's high-velocity weirdo fuzz exploded out of Nashville from the pandemic sludge and hasn't slowed a minute since, winning namedrops from the likes of Henry Rollins and a scenewide rep for eccentric paper-mache use. Imagine a hardcore Devo presenting children’s TV at breakneck speed. Unmissable FFO: Ausmuteants, Gee Tee, Prison Affair, Powerplant. Snõõper at Exchange.

Brutal anarcho-crust-noize like the most careening Crass moments mashed into Merzbow’s greatest power electronic ballads. Bad Breeding summon the unholy voice of disenfranchised Stevenage youth - the most crucial punk bands of the last 10 years? Essential for fans of: Flux of Pink Indians, Pissed Jeans, Killing Joke. BAD BREEDING plus supports at Exchange.

Pummeling, whacked-out, 1 minute Mississippi hardcore tracks about dogs and cyclops babies. Trading politico-punk rage for a joyfully frantic weirdness; devotees of Grandma’s House, Plastics or Poison Girls will swoon in the pit for Judy. JUDY & THE JERKS, GIMIC, SNEER and TENSION at Exchange.

Sell out warning! Grubby Aussie garage-pub-sludge played at near-thrash speeds with pure petroleum vocals. Pure rippers FFO: Hard-Ons, Zeke, Motörhead, Youth of Today, the Spits, Amyl and The Sniffers. C.O.F.F.I.N at Exchange.
