An essential tour stop for any emerging indie artist the Louisiana is Bristol's prime indie and folk venue. Literally everyone who's anyone has played the Lousiana on their way to the top, and I mean everyone. Muse, Kings of Leon, White Stripes, Bloc Party, Coldplay, The Libertines, The Strokes... all have graced the Lousiana's modest stage.
Our recent recommendations

An evening of live music with all takings going to support the work of women’s mental health charity, Wish.
80s UK post-punk / goth rock legends on the more synth-based atmospheric side of things. For fans of Gene Loves Jezebel or Pornography-era Cure; with many hidden Sister’s grade dancefloor anthems under their belt. Support from local neo-classical / chamber goth enchanters Dead Space Chamber Music.
