Music Venues in Glasgow
As a UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow and its inhabitants place a very special emphasis on the art. From folk and trad to pop and rock, Glasgow has a heaving stock of great music and incredible venues in which to hear it. Whether you're an amateur or an aficionado, there's just the place for you to hear some great bands and musicians in the city. From the West End to Merchant City, we've come up with a list of venues for all your slow-swaying and mosh-pitting needs. Rock on, Glasgow, rock on.
Founded by the folks from the now extinct Captain's Rest, Broadcast has a cracking selection of live gigs. A popular spot with discerning musos, alt and indie bands draw a heaving crowd to the cool warehouse style basement venue.
Blackfriars is a cool den for alternative live music in Merchant City. A bit of a hidden gem, Blackfriars hosts some kicking nights of live soul, funk, reggae, mod, ska, indie, rock 'n' roll, blues and country. If you love live music and are looking for something a little different, Blackfriars' gigs are worth checking out.
The Old Hairdresser's is a cool wee hideout on Renfield Lane. Upstairs in the attic is a tiny venue with a slapdash church hall vibe. A fun spot for party gigs where the crowd of trendy young things dance the night away to thumping local bands and musicians. A twee spot to catch a gig in Glasgow.
