GO Live Music in Brighton

Live Music in Brighton Whatever your taste in music there’s bound to be a venue in Brighton where you can enjoy an evening of live musical entertainment.

The city’s premier spot for major gigs is the Brighton Centre [map] on Kings Road, which has a 5,000 capacity auditorium. Stars who have performed here in the past include Van Morrison, Shirley Bassey and Michael Crawford, as well as a number of up-and-coming bands.

This centre is also renowned as an exhibition and conference space, playing host to the Labour Party Conference on a number of occasions.

To see some of the hottest DJs around in action get along to Event II [map], which doubles as a nightclub and gig venue. The music is fairly mainstream, with many dance, R‘n’B and indie acts playing here.

For a chance to see the best local bands of the moment head to the Black Horse [map] in the North Laine district, which has a very friendly and laid-back atmosphere. The pub attracts a clientele of musical minds, with regular jam sessions and performances by local bands, while some people even bring their own records to play.

A mix of new and well known bands play at The Freebutt [map] pub off Grand Parade, which has long been a favourite gigging venue in Brighton. Although the main area is fairly spacious with a pool table and fruit machines, the stage just around the other side is probably about the same size as your front room. It’s mainly local indie and punk bands that play here but the pub also attracts musicians from abroad as well as featuring the occasional hip hop night.

If jazz is more your musical style then head for the aptly named Jazz Rooms [map] in The Lanes area of town, which has become a bit of an institution in Brighton. This venue offers some fine live jazz mixed with excellent funky records.

Finally, for something altogether different pay a visit to Los Amigos [map] on Church Road in Hove, which provides a wonderful mix of fine Latin food, live salsa music and plenty of beer, wine and cocktails.
