If you are visiting Bristol specifically to visit their famous music venues, here is the run down of 4 that you must visit. These venues have held some of the largest names in music and have helped build the culture of Bristol and ‘The Bristol Sound.
- Colston Hall
Colston Hall is a phenomenal space that holds some of the most unique shows and experiences in the city. It features a large refurbished hall with a large amount of seating. The hall has hosted many concerts with some of the world’s biggest music stars including The Beatles, David Bowie and Bob Dylan.
There are many concerts here which are not to be missed. Check out their listings here.
- The Fleece
The Fleece is a smaller music venue that holds a special place in most Bristolians hearts. The size of the venue doesn’t limit the size of the bands that play here and the atmosphere is always optimal.
The Fleece has seen the likes of Oasis, Muse, Radiohead and Queens Of The Stone Age playing upon it’s stage and houses regular performances with top bands.
Thekla is a bit of a special one because it is actually a boat. The venue is a large boat that is permanently anchored on the floating harbour.
The venue plays a variety of shows from a range of artists and genres. Some bands that have played here include: Frank Turner, Bat for Lashes, Kate Nash, Robyn, Florence & the Machine, Example and many more.
This venue gives you an experience you won’t forget.
- Trinity Centre
This trinity centre is a former church turned music venue and arts centre. The centre supports many charities as well as hosting huge names from the music industry. It is a large standing venue and is recognised as the location where ‘The Bristol Sound’ was first created.
All of these venues are ones that shouldn’t be missed. It is recommended to come and spend some time in the city and explore the venues personally, as they are all completely unique and will each show you a different aspect of Bristol’s music scene.
